Description: Michael Porter points out that “Strategy is about making choices [and] trade-offs; it’s about deliberately choosing to be different.” And ‘choices’ are the key. Strategy inherently involves focus and limits, with variables like market expectations, channel distribution, costs, revenue and margins, and customer acquisition and retention all vying for emphasis. A good strategy balances such factors, while providing clarity on what organizational objectives are – and how to achieve them. This course helps students understand how to not only create value, but present it to the marketplace. In particular, students will “understand how corporations create, capture, and sustain competitive advantage; analyze business situations and create a coherent corporate strategy; and understand the fit between corporate strategy and organization structure to improve economic performance.”

Review: No reviews.

Additional Background: This is the sixth of a seven course specialization from the University of Illinois called “Strategic Leadership and Management.” It includes courses on organizational design, business and corporate strategy, and applying leadership techniques.
