•Develop plans to improve business operations

•Recognize situations that present potential ethical and ethical issues and develop solutions for those issues.

Grading Criteria:

The defining of any entity's identity requires a lot of honest introspection. It is an iterative process that harmonizes the strengths and weaknesses of the organization with the external environment in which it operates. It requires an accurate forecast of the industry's key

trends and a ruthless, realistic appraisal of the company's potential. It necessitates the establishment of rigid time frames for the execution of strategy and a constant reappraisal and adjustment of the company's tactics. In order to establish this identity, the values and desires of

key decision-makers should be ascertained, the image that exists with key customers should be researched, past triumphs and failures should be reviewed, and areas of synergy with the parent company Walden should be explored.

i.Among the elements are innovation, the growth segments of cordless and consumer channels, and the brand equity of the circular saw

product line.

ii.A form of triage, where factors such as ease of implementation, ability to defend, ability to achieve internal support and owner's buy-in,

longevity, flexibility, rate of financial return, and market share capture are all weighed and evaluated against each other.

iii.A business plan is not complete unless success metrics are established up front and then evaluated at the completion of each strategic

stage. Interim targets should be established, and formalized periodic review meetings should be instituted. Status reports given by the

appropriate managers and should cover such measures as market share targets, sales volume, pretax profit, inventory levels and turnover,

and shelf space attainment. Delivery length 5-7 pages. All references in APA format with in text citation.
