Strategic Plan Part 1: New Product or Service Introduction
Choice Home Warranty is competitive because there are so many competitors in the home warranty business. It is important for a company to be innovative with their ideas and apply them to their product line. Customer Service is part of an organization’s foundation and should always be customer focused. In fact, Choice Home Warranty’s sales call fee is much lower than other well-known warranty companies such as Select Home Warranty and Total Protect Home Warranty. Consumers are often concerned with how much something will cost them, especially when contracts are involved. Choice Home Warranty’s policy covers appliances among other systems. Sometimes, customers are put in a position where they must purchase a new appliance with funds that were due them because of an electrical malfunction or a technician’s incompetence. Choice Home Warranty solicits policies, but could solicit other products or services that would be a convenient and innovative to customers. New Service
For the new company division, I propose a business division that is titled, “Choice Home Credit”. CHW has a sales call fee of $45 and $60; this depends on the promotion that a customer is offered at the time they sign up for the warranty service. This fee is due every time a technician is dispatched to a customer’s residence to fix a system, whether it is covered or not. CHW has month-to-month plans that is easy for customers to cancel. However, for customers who purchase CHW’s 3 or 5-year package, may possibly run into several situations where their systems or appliances have mechanical failures due to normal wear and tear and this could become costly. Choice Home Credit would allow…...

We value creativity and encourage kids to express themselves in a way never before done.

...Appreciate the feedback! Resource Incompentencies At times the management team does not agree on all strategic decisions which pose a challenge in reaching consensus. We are presented with time constraints and at times decisions are ultimately made by the President or certain managers; therefore, consensus is not always reached. We recognize that while we would like to reach consensus, due to time constraints and to multiple amounts of opinions offered we are unable to, as a result, we will rely on the President to keep things moving and to reach conclusions. (because too many opinions makes it hard to reach agreement) ADDED SENTENCE IN BLUE TEXT Simulated Resources Our start-up capital was $6.8 million, together with the money borrowed we were able to build a luxury hotel and to position ourselves on top of our competitors in terms of having attained a higher net income and market capitalization after year 1. Our ending cash balance is just over $5 million and we have a luxury hotel. Strength: we can invest, pay back the loan, and build more rooms. Weakness: we want to ensure we do not deplete our assets relative to our competitors as this can put us in a precarious position and lead to bankruptcy if not properly planned-how much money did we have this year? PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR HERE. (I meant how much we made on period 1 and how much was available for us at period 2 and compare to our competitors.

Strategic Plan

...STRATEGIC PLANNING  One approach to strategic planning is to match an organization's goods and services with its markets, generally in the long term. The long term is viewed as two or more years. To minimize threats from competitive inroads and obsolescence, every business unit must have a strategic plan and constantly monitor its markets and competitors. Tomorrow's winning products must be researched, tested, developed and introduced before today's winners become obsolete. To manage its future every company needs a business strategy and a marketing strategy. The business strategy guides the corporate mission, financial and operational planning, its search for new products, technologies, and market targets. The marketing strategy takes the business strategy as given, then focuses on matching products to markets. Market planning involves the shorter run, annual and day-to-day, activities of developing and executing the marketing mix elements of the company's offerings. As execution is carried out, constant feedback must be assured to provide input for modifications to the marketing plan in the face of changing conditions. Every organization has a marketing strategy. It can be expressed either as written plans or as a collection of unwritten or even unstated rules. In either case, it should include a statement or understanding about the company's mission, customers, and offerings whether formalized or informal.  To have no strategy is to be directionless or what might......
