Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for your trust. Having provided advice on this very topic before, I have decided to present to you the information and advice I have put together for students who have successfully explained the R & K strategies. You must already be familiar with them as they are part of the course material that you are tackling in your course - your professor is just expecting you to show that you have indeed studied the material and have come understand them. The task is simple; provide an example each of the r's and k's. I suggest using this outline for 500 words -

1. Introduction - what is it about? - 100 words
2. 2 r strategies - 200 words plus examples
3. 2 k strategies - same as above

You have to decide on the kind of examples you want, I suggest using familiar companies on this one. I will show you how you can express your ideas in the solution below. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. Just let me know if you need further help. All the best with your studies.
