Current Event Blog 1
In your SLP for this course you will be considered a strategic management subject matter expert and will be asked to blog about IMPORTANT aspects of the strategic management process and to provide examples to support your key arguments based on current events pulled from recent articles from reputable sources (such as a major national news source like the NY Times, Business Week, etc.).
Your main article(s) for each of your blog entries must be no older than 4 months old. If you use an older article as your primary focal article, you will be asked to redo the assignment. You may, of course, use older sources to support your discussion but the current event article serving as the main focus of your paper must be recent.
For your first SLP discuss why the mission and vision are IMPORTANT in helping to shape organizational strategy and find two recent articles (no older than four months old) that provide examples of organizations that seem to be living up to (or failing at) fulfilling their mission and vision.
Remember that you are playing the role of a person blogging about strategic management and the key here is to convey to the public the importance of the mission and vision statement in a strategic management context and to provide examples of organizations who do well (or poorly) in fulfilling their stated missions and visions. Also remember to keep your discussion focused on strategic management.
