3 – Evaluate the competitive strategy of Sainsbury over the last decade This question requires you to look at how Sainsbury’s have attempted to achieve a competitive advantage over their rivals. Firstly, you must identify what their strategy is and secondly, the question asks you to “evaluate” it.

1 Executive Summary The summary includes a concise but complete description of the problem addressed in this paper, how we propose to solve it as well as recommendations. 1.1 Problem Statement FlexCon is making an effort to redefine itself by gaining a better understanding of strategic insourcing/outsourcing alternatives.

Therefore, the company has elected to conduct an internal review in order to decide where product development efforts and strategic investment should focus. During the internal review of the company, Executive Management noted that too much capacity and talent are being allocated to simple, commodity type items, which are providing minimal product differentiation in the market place.

According to Marketing teacher (2010), strengths and the weaknesses forms the internal part of the issues relating to an organization. On the other hand, opportunities and the threats present the external factors affecting the operations of an organization. Zahorsky (2009) posits that the SWOT analysis helps a company to look beyond where it is and focus on its visions.
