Learning goal: To develop your ability to systematically analyze and plan for a dynamic, fast-growing organization. You will prepare a strategic analysis of/plan for Uber. Your â€œclientâ€ is that organizationâ€™s top management team. Your paper will be graded on the basis of its insight, logic, and scope.
Your paper should be three pages, double-spaced, using 12-point type, not including appendixes, exhibits, and/or references. Please follow this format:
â€¢ Current capabilitiesâ€”as a mix of differentiation (D), economy (E), and interaction (I)*
â€¢ Current customers, competitors, and complementors (C3)
â€¢ Your time frame (planning horizon), and rationale for that date
â€¢ Your proposed capabilities
â€¢ Your expected/proposed C3
â€¢ Rationale for your proposed capabilities
â€¢ Rationale for your expected/proposed C3
â€¢ Major implementation issue(s)
*All three criteria matter, but most organizations can excel against only one or twoâ€”so
there are six viable strategic options: D, E, I, DE, DI, or EI. Some DEI parallels from
the strategy literature are listed on p. 107 of The Geometry of Strategy.
