    Research help of the Accenture Company (http://www.accenture.com/)

    1. Analysis of Strategic Factor. Since you are aware that your analysis of strategic factors or SFAS (Strategic Factor Analysis Summary) is based on IFAS and EFAS tables, and since we will need to understand your choices, you are required to submit the three tables in Excel format in one separate file from your written Word assignment. No submission of an Excel file or submission of a table in a Word file will cause me to lose half of the points of this assignment. No comments are needed on the IFAS and the EFAS tables, but comments are needed on the SFAS table, which is the foundation for this assignment (You will submit one Excel file that will include three separate sheets, one for the IFAS, one for the EFAS and one for the SFAS). As a reminder, two files are to be submitted: One Excel file (counting for three pages) and one Word file (five to seven pages double-spaced).

    2. Strategic Alternatives and Recommended Strategy Here you will be graded on your ability to analyze economic, socio-cultural, political-legal, technological, and financial data to justify your available strategies and the one(s) you recommend.

    3. Implementation: Describe the implementation of the strategy(ies) you recommended.

    4. Evaluation and Control How do you evaluate the performance of your implemented strategy(ies)? (Strategic Audit)

    Total assignment-should be one in MS Word containing the written portion, and one file in MS Excel, which will contain three sheets - the EFAS, the IFAS, and the SFAS.

    I need to emphasize the need for a conversational style, paragraph-oriented paper. DO NOT use the outline and write short statements, rather use the outline as a guide...start with Section V, Analysis of Strategic Factor. For section V, you complete a basic EFAS and IFAS table, then use those as a basis to create an SFAS table. Your alternatives (directional, portfolio, or parenting strategies) in Section VI should flow from your Section V SFAS.
