Research Chevron (http://www.chevron.com).

Using your research findings from the Library and the Internet, develop both an EFAS (External Factors Analysis Summary) table and an IFAS (Internal Factors Analysis Summary) table. The tables are to be submitted in one Excel file (one sheet for the EFAS and one sheet for the IFAS), separate from your assignment that will be written in MS Word.

You will be graded on your knowledge of the software and math in building the MS Excel tables, and on your ability to communicate in writing and present your arguments. The description of both your environmental and internal scanning process, including what factors you considered and why will be in your MS Word file.

In summary, you will submit two files: one file in MS Excel, which will count as two written pages, and one file in MS Word, which should be 4-6 pages in length.

As per wikipedia Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) is the world's fifth largest non-government energy company. Headquartered in San Ramon, California, USA and active in more than 180 countries, it is engaged in every aspect of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production; refining, marketing and transport; chemicals manufacturing and sales; and power generation. Chevron is one of the world's six "supermajor" oil companies.
As per the Chevron website:
Company Roots

We trace our earliest roots to an 1879 oil discovery at Pico Canyon, north of Los Angeles, which led to the formation of the Pacific Coast Oil Co. That company later became Standard Oil Co. of California and, subsequently, Chevron. We took on the name "Chevron" when we acquired Gulf Oil Corp. in 1984, nearly doubling our worldwide proved oil and gas reserves. Our merger with Gulf was at that time the largest in U.S. history.

Another major branch of the family tree is The Texas Fuel Company, which was formed in Beaumont, Texas, in 1901. It later became known as The Texas Company and eventually Texaco. In 2001, our two companies merged to form ChevronTexaco. The name was changed to Chevron in 2005 to convey a clearer, stronger and more unified presence around the world. The acquisition of Unocal Corporation in 2005 strengthened Chevron's position as an energy industry leader, enhancing our oil and natural gas assets around the world.
Global Scope

Our diverse and highly skilled global workforce consists of more than 59,000 employees and about 5,800 service station employees. As a company and as individuals, we take great pride in contributing to the communities where we live and work. We also care deeply about the environment and are proud of the many ways in which our employees work to safeguard it.

In 2007, Chevron produced 2.62 million barrels of oil-equivalent per day. About 70 percent of that volume occurred outside the United States and in more than 20 different countries. Chevron had a global refining capacity of more than 2 million barrels of oil per day at the end of 2007. Our marketing network supports more than 25,000 retail outlets on six continents. And we have invested in 15 power-generating facilities in the United States and Asia.
