    For Instructional Purpose. I am completing the grand strategy matrix for a new restaurant business - Savory Restaurant (SR). You can use a newly established organization of your choice for the same scenario. To be logical about the assignment, I will use a comprehensive illustration. The Grand Strategy is towards the end of the paper, but will make logical sense after reading from the beginning.

    Before establishing a grand strategy, an organization needs to have a vision, mission, SWOT and long-term objective to align its grand strategy with. Therefore, I will supply necessary information before proceeding with the grand strategy.

    To obtain a successful strategic plan outcome, an organization must have a vision, mission, and conduct a SWOT analysis (Pearce & Robinson, 2013, p. 164). SR's vision will indicate its purpose and goals, its mission will illustrate the path to achieving its purpose and goals, and SWOT analysis will in determining the status of its strengths and weaknesses. SR plans to sell healthy food and drink. SR plans to establish its operation in Lawrenceville, Ga because our research indicates there competitors of restaurant foods in the area, but not too many of them serve healthy (organic) food and drinks. Surveillance of an organization's external environment is necessary in taking advantage of favorable market conditions (opportunities) and establishing a contingency plans for hazards (threats). Long-term objectives are necessity for an organization's growth. Strategic option and decision will help an organization to create a realistic pathway to achieving its vision, mission, and long-term goals (Finance, 2015, p. 1). This paper will discuss strategic options that are applicable to SR.
