Using the Hoover’s or LexisNexis library databases, select an organization that you believe has executed optimal strategic moves to strengthen its generic strategy. Using concepts from Module Five, justify your selection of this organization. (Do not analyze the company you have already chosen for your final project or the case analysis assigned in this module).

Select an organization that no other class member has yet analyzed in your initial post. Post the organization’s name in the subject field of your initial post. Debate your classmates’ selections as optimal organizations for strategic moves.
Chipotle Mexican Grill, the American Mexican food chain restaurant, opened its first restaurant in the United States in 1993. In 2010, Chipotle opened its first restaurant in the United Kingdom in London on Charing Cross. By late May 2013, the company had 6 restaurants in London, but they have not been doing well even though the British have taken a liking to Mexican food (Boyle, 2013). Why has this successful U.S. chain not seen the same success overseas?

If you were Chipotle’s CEO, how would you fix this situation? What is an alternative means of venturing outside of its domestic markets that may allow for a competitive advantage?

Then, pick a company (Home Depot) that has not yet expanded overseas, or if it has expanded, suggest a different strategy for entrance into an overseas market that you feel would be more strategic for the company. Research its rivals in the global marketplace and market conditions in the overseas market you are targeting. Justify your recommended entry strategy based on these industry and market conditions.
Between the structures of “functional,” “product,” “geographic,” and “hybrid,” discuss the benefits of each. Research online and in other places to relate real-world examples.
Discuss the values and pitfalls of forming a strategic alliance in a foreign nation, using an example.
Organizations have a variety of reasons to diversify their business and many ways to diversify and retrench.

Review the products 3M offers (http://www.3m.com/) and the markets it serves. Select one or more 3M businesses and comment on their business diversification strategies using concepts from this module.
