Complete an analysis of the key internal factors that have implications for successful
implementation of your organization’s strategy and goals/objectives. Submit your work in your
assignment folder in the form of an approximate 2,000-word double-spaced APA-formatted
paper. The title page, reference list, and any appendices are not included in this suggested word
count. You do not need to include an abstract.
Your paper should address these topics listed below number 1-4 :
1. Given the Army Vision, Mission and Objectives (VMO), identify the company’s core
competencies and assess which ones are rare, costly, or not easily imitated. Discuss how
they are related to and critical to the VMO execution.
2. Present a summary of your organization's strengths and weaknesses. Submit the SWOT
format in Table form and add in some narrative to discuss the strengths and weaknesses
in more detail. Explain in your discussion (not in the table) why you selected them and
how they relate to the VMO and organization strategy:
Please take a look at the video it will explain what a SWOT means. Please do not forget to create a
table explaining SWOT.
3. Apply the Resource-Based View (RBV) to help you identify both the tangible and intangible
assets your organization may be able to use to accomplish its intended strategies. You can list
them in a table form and then follow with a discussion of the assets, why you selected them and
how they relate to the VMO and strategy.

4. Consider and discuss the things that may make your organization's resources and
capabilities difficult for others to imitate. Use Value Chain Analysis to help you deepen
your understanding of the relative value of the resources and capabilities you have
identified. Seek objective and independently verifiable evidence of potential rarity of the
resources and capabilities.
IMPORTANT: Do not just use someone else's SWOT or other analysis. We want you to
think for yourself. Critically analyze your firm and write about your original
conclusions. Imagine you have been asked by the organization’s CEO or top leader to
offer an assessment of the organization and how well it is positioned (or not) to deliver on
the VMO and strategy. This is a critical element, stand back and offer thoughtful
criticism and recommendations.
Add in a strong conclusion that ensures the reader leaves your paper with a clear recap of
your key points.
