In lieu of the current discussion questions at the end of the “Issue for Debate” on page 323 regarding Tata
Motors and Tesla students will develop a strategic plan with recommendations for future implementation.
For this assignment, students will walk through the strategic management process. The strategic
management process enables organizations to achieve objectives through three stages: strategy
formulation, strategy implementation, and strategy evaluation. Your strategic plan/recommendations should
aim to innovate. Throughout the development of your strategic plan consider your organization’s
responsibility in the greater social good from a Christian perspective and how your plan address ethics,
social responsibility and sustainability. Imagine you need to present your initial pitch for your Strategic
Initiative Plan to Tesla. Develop a 5-7-page paper that outlines your strategic plan and recommendations.
In your presentation, address the following: Provide the vision, mission, and core values of the
organization. Complete a SWOT analysis and Porter’s Five Forces analysis. What is your competitive
advantage? Moving forward what specific recommendations would you suggest for Tesla to implement?
How will these efforts be evaluated? Is Tesla trying to build an ambidextrous organization? Should it be
doing so? If yes, what actions can it take to build an ambidextrous firm? How would you evaluate those
actions? Provide 3-5 sources in your paper in addition to your textbook. Proper APA format is required for
this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented
using APA formatting guidelines.
