Critical Thinking:  Strategic Recommendations

This week you have a scenario where you will use a real KSA company


Managing the multi-business corporation to meet high performance expectations is problematic. Research a company in KSA that manages multiple businesses:


1.  Explain the corporate structure and provide a review of its business portfolio. HEADING: Corporate Structure and Portfolio


1. What advice would you provide on the use of portfolio matrices and which portfolio matrix would you recommend: the GE McKinsey, BCG, or Ashridge matrix? Why? HEADING: Recommendation of Portfolio Matrix

2. Apply your recommended portfolio matrix and provide a portfolio analysis. HEADING: Portfolio Analysis using Matrix

3. How does diversification create value through the linkages between businesses? HEADING: Diversification Value Creation


Remember this is an essay with an introduction which has a thesis, body (questions), and a conclusion.

Your well-written paper should meet the following requirements:

Be 6-7 pages in length, which does not include the title page or required reference page, which are never a part of the content minimum requirements.

Use APA style guidelines. Support your submission with course material concepts, principles, and theories from the textbook and at least four scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles unless the assignment calls for more.

It is strongly encouraged that you submit all assignments into the Turnitin Originality Check before submitting it to your instructor for grading.

Review the grading rubric to see how you will be graded for this assignment. Review the grading rubric to see how you will be graded for this assignment.

Please use the four headings noted above.  You will have to provide a matrix in the paper as well, which accounts for the extra page or two for this essay.

As we discussed in our Live Session, you will need to “analyze” this assignment and not just provide general statements about the topics.
