Assessing and Managing Risk BUS-485
The purpose of this assignment is to assess how potential value-enhancing strategies may pose
risk to a firm.
Review your instructor's feedback on the Strategic Alternatives Assessment and the Financial
Analysis assignments. Use that feedback to guide your analysis of the strategies that you believe
will provide the most significant opportunities for your firm to manage risk and add value.
Keep in mind that increasing value for the firm does not necessarily mean expanding the
business. Acquiring other firms, conducting research and development, or introducing new
products and services might fall under the umbrella of value enhancement, while in other cases it
may mean downsizing, rightsizing, or even refining the products and services the firm offers.
In a paper of approximately 1,500 words, revisit the strategic alternatives and financial analysis
recommendations that offer the greatest opportunities to add value to your firm and assess the
risks of each. Use the information you have learned about your company's business model,
industry, competition, and target market in conjunction with the feedback you received on your
work in the previous two topics to assist you in addressing the following.
1. In the Strategic Alternatives Assessment, you evaluated potential growth opportunities
and strategies for your firm, using a SWOT analysis to assess the advantages and
disadvantages of each. Recapitulate your findings here in conjunction with any instructor
feedback received, identifying how you determined your proposed strategic alternative(s)
and calculated potential inhibitors to each. Expand upon your initial proposed alternatives
to include financial considerations.
2. Throughout the course, you have developed and submitted reports for your firm based on
information that you and your CLC group have acquired and assessed. However, it is
equally important to consider what other information, had you been able to locate it,
would have been of value in formulating recommendations. What information are you
lacking that might assist you and your team in developing and suggesting value-
enhancing strategic alternatives? What information are you lacking that would assist you
and your team in better assessing and managing possible risks of the proposed
alternatives?
3. When it comes to making strategic recommendations to management, financial
considerations weigh significantly on the feasibility and viability of the available options.
Revisit the Financial Analysis assignment and, with the incorporation of any instructor
feedback received, reiterate your findings on the financial condition and performance of
the firm respective to the risks and benefits of forming a strategic alliance, profitability
ratios, and possible value-enhancing strategies.
4. Given your instructor's feedback and considering how the financial markets have changed
since you submitted your Financial Analysis assignment, how would you refine or update
your assessment of the organization's current performance and financial strategies?
5. How would you use a decision matrix to determine the risks of your suggested strategic
alternative and the potential financial implications for your company of pursuing this
