For your project, the years you choose should be guided by your prior research which indicated the challenges of the company. So, if the company went through some difficult times during the 2007 recession, you might look at a financial snapshot from 2004 and another from 2008 or 2009 to see the impact of the down cycle in the business environment. Or, if their operations underwent a significant overhaul in 2014, snapshots might be taken back in 2012 (before) and again in 2017 (after) to see what the effects were on the balance sheet, the income statement and the return on capital investments. As an additional consideration, if one of the challenges you found was your company has lagging sales performance relative to its industry rivals, a smart action on your part would be to look up the data for at least one sample year of the rival, choosing also the data for the same year for your company to give an "apples-to-apples" comparison financial data for comparison. This comparison would show how a competitor organization in the same economic environment was able to perform, relative to your selected company. Assignment Deliverables: • Students will upload for this assignment an Excel workbook with the financial data formatted for ease of viewing and indicate via cell color or other formatting techniques those financial indicators and/or trends of interest to the company's strategic challenges. Indicators could be in the areas of financing such as leverage, inventory, operational costs, or marketing-related such as declines in sales, etc. • • Graphs/charts requirement: from data in the bullet above, students will isolate key factors such as cost of goods sold , net profit, long-term debt or other factors affecting financial performance and graphically show how the strategic issue they discovered shows up in a financial or operational measure. • • Students will also include a 1-2 page Word document summarizing briefly their initial findings from the previous "historical and current challenges assignment", then explain the key findings from this financial review and make sure to reference specific evidence from the Excel document you will be uploading. We are all living through a black swan event (see pgs 40-41 in your text, as a start) in the current global pandemic of COVID-19. The lock down of whole cities, the shuttering of businesses and the restriction of travel are all having a dampening effect on the global business environment. A White House official recently warned of the possibility of up to 20% unemployment due to these unprecedented factors ( (Links to an external site.)). As part of an updated PESTEL review, are political leaders, in the U.S. or elsewhere, planning changes to help mitigate the impacts? There are many possible questions that could be explored, including the real possibility of a global recession. Each of you is doing a case study on a business and from a strategic perspective, I'd like to hear what the current and future possible impacts might be on your business of interest. Has your company communicated its adjustments? Is your business providing services and goods virtually and maybe has an unforeseen advantage for this type of situation (like Amazon, Zoom and NetFlix), or does it largely depend on physical foot traffic (i.e. like Walmart and Target)? Regardless of their "normal" business model, is it adapting to these changes to better navigate the downside risk? Also, as I was answering a student's question this morning, I thought to again reiterate the need in the upcoming financial analysis portion that the main product I'm expecting is not the Excel sheets you've downloaded from the SEC website. Those are simply the source documents. The product should be products of your analysis, likely charts and graphs that communicate something of the strategic situation of the company and how it is doing. It would also be helpful, as applicable, to compare some of its performance factor(s) to the same factors of one or more of its major competitors. ...
