A+ In The News 

This project is intended to provide current material for class discussion and review. This material must relate to your Course Project subject. To receive full credit for this requirement, submit the In the News during Week 5.

Relevance and probable interest to the class are especially welcome. These items should be accompanied by a one- to two-page report (using bullet points). Be sure to use specific course concepts from the readings in Chapters 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10. Examples are: Competitive Advantage-Porter’s Generic Strategies (page 162), The Experience Curve (page 165), Industry Life Cycle Stages (pages 187–189), Turnaround Strategies (pages 193–195), Vertical Integration (pages 210–214), Portfolio Management and the BCG Matrix (pages 216–226), Strategic Alliances and Joint Ventures (pages 226–228), Competitive Dynamics (pages 299–306), Culture (pages 322–330), and Organization Structure (pages 357–385).
