To determine whether you can evaluate a company’s internal and external environments and create a strategic plan.

the same company.
• All projects must be typed and double spaced and follow APA Style Guidelines (see OWL @ Purdue).
• The project must be in complete sentences and will be graded on grammar, spelling, and whether
your answers are clear and precise.
• Your grade will depend on the thoroughness of your analysis.
• You will receive a zero if more than 25% of your paper is deemed to be plagiarized. Further, you are
NOT allowed to reference other people’s analysis of the company. The only references that are
acceptable are SEC company filings and articles from business publications with an author. For full
credit, you must cite each of your references in your paper.
• DUE Sunday, December 8, 2019.
Your analysis must include all sections shown below. Label each heading appropriately. Provide a brief purpose of each section before each analysis. Point values for each section are given.
