with the roles and tasks of firmsí top managers (i.e., strategic
decision makers). This course is designed to provide an appreciation
for the total firm perspective and the means by which firms create
and sustain competitive advantage in todayís increasingly
challenging and complex business environment (domestic and global).
Strategic management of a firm involves diagnosing the firmís
current situation and developing realistic solutions to the
strategic and organizational problems that confront top managers. A
desired outcome of this course is an enhanced appreciation for the
complexities of managing a formal organization. The primary
objective of the course is to help develop analytical skills for
identifying key strategic issues and formulating appropriate
strategies given a firmís situation. The course will provide
exposure to the theories, concepts, and techniques of strategic
management through the text, readings, illustrative cases, and video
vignettes.
