Predicting and Developing a Long-Term Growth Strategy

Posted on Updated on

You also need to extend the scope of management accounting beyond the organization.

This external focus will help you develop a sustainable competitive advantage, which is the primary element of your long-term growth strategy.

In this assignment, you will analyze the factors that affect the long-term growth strategy of a company.

Tasks:

Respond to the following:

  • What can you learn from the financial statements of competitors that determine the relative cost position of your company?
  • What are some of the ways in which you can secure a sustainable cost advantage over the competition?
  • How does maintaining a strong understanding of relative costs help you maintain the competitive advantage?
  • How do you use cost structure to differentiate products? Do you think product differentiation is a successful growth strategy? Why or why not?
  • What is the usefulness of conducting a customer profitability analysis?
