In our course reading for this week, we will analyze the environment, capabilities, and resources within an organization. In moving forward with our understanding of these concepts, discussion the following questions.
(1) Why is the definition of the business so important to environmental analysis? What are some key dimensions along which a business should be defined?
(2) What is the key to Harley-Davidson’s competitive advantage? Can the success of this firm be attributed to any one resource, capability, or attribute?
Responses to each of the questions will be submitted prior to each class session, and graded based on the quality, depth, integration of concepts and readings, and demonstrated critical analysis of the material.
