After reading Case 12, Staples in 2015, complete a case analysis using the outline format. Your headings will be History, Industry Analysis, Corporate Level Strategy, Business Level Strategy, Structure and Controls, Internal Analysis, External Analysis, and Recommendations and Evaluations.
Remember that you may only use the textbook case and Staple’s website for your facts.
The purpose of this assignment is to give you practice in applying the managerial concepts you have learned over the course of your studies in the Business Administration program. You will also gain experience in condensing a company’s history, and putting all the information in an outline format instead of a narrative paper.
