This module week starts the planning of your Strategic Audit Report
This module week starts the planning of your Strategic Audit Report. The Strategic Audit Report will enable you to gain an understanding of a business’s strategic position, financial posture, leadership team, the internal and external environment that impacts them, and corporate resources (which includes marketing, finance, human resources, information technology, and other elements).
By Module 8 you will compile and submit all of the information for your report, which will then be implemented it into a formatted strategic audit plan to help identify issues that need to be corrected and provide a forward-thinking strategy that best meets the needs of the business.
Select a business to research and write an introductory overview to use as part of the strategic audit report that you will create throughout the term. Do not use an organization you have researched in another course; use only original research and material.
It is recommended you select a publicly traded company (stocks) for your strategic audit company. Public traded companies are required to make all of their financial information and board of director’s information available to the general public, which makes it easier for you to collect the data needed for your strategic audit report.
Your Introduction Overview should include the following:
- The name of your business.
- History and background of the business.
- Detail of what the business does and who they do it for.
- Use a minimum of two (2) outside sources.
- This section should be one (1) full page in length.
- The document should be double-spaced, correctly cited and referenced, using current APA formatting.
