Online Customer Relationship Management (Unit 4 Individual Project)

Assignment Description (SEE WEEK ONE)

The company that you are working for is considering buying another smaller firm. However, there is some business analysis needed for your company to make its final decision about purchasing. Throughout this course, you will be working on creating the Business Strategy and Management Plan.
Keep in mind that the final Business Strategy and Management Plan template should contain the following elements:
Title page
Course number and name
Project name
Your name
Date
Table of contents
Autogenerated
Update
Maximum of 3 levels deep

Section headings

Each week, you will add a section to your Business Strategy and Management Plan and submit it for grading. For Week 1, you will make a qualitative evaluation of the industry’s
strategic position using Porter’s five forces. (Please note that the summaries below for Weeks 2–5 do not need to be completed in Week 1. Just create the section headings at
this time).

As a preview, each section will contain the following subsections:

Qualitative Evaluation of the Industry’s Strategic Position (Week 1 IP)
Choose an aspect of the information technology (IT) industry that has not been previously used as an example in this course. Use Porter’s five forces to make a
qualitative evaluation of the industry’s strategic position. Be sure to explain each of the five forces as well as explain how they relate to your chosen industry.
Note: The mobile phone industry was provided as an example in the video material and may not be used as the subject for this assignment.

Remember to include the following elements (Porter’s five forces):

The threat of new entrants: Are new entrants being attracted to the market, and are there barriers to entry in the industry?
The threat of substitute products or services: Are there other products that could be alternatives to offerings in the chosen industry?
Bargaining power of customers: What degree of bargaining power do the buyers have in terms of putting the industry under pressure to provide more
products or less cost?
Bargaining power of suppliers: What is the importance of raw materials, components, labor, and services that are required for the industry, and are there
substitutes for those inputs? Discuss the possibility of switching suppliers, if necessary.
The intensity of competitive rivalry: Does the industry have a sustainable competitive advantage?

(the section below is what I have to add each week for the individual projects you will see on the attachment below, however the first week only the week 1 IP is due) If you have any questions, please let me know. This assignment should be at least 4-5 pages long.
