The objective of this course is to provide an evidence-based understanding of best practice in strategic management, including business policy and corporate strategy. As a research-led course it will explore a range of strategic management theories.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. define, explain and illustrate a range of strategic management theories;
  2. analyse an organisation’s internal and external strategically relevant environments by applying appropriate theories, models and heuristics;
  3. undertake an applied research project in the field of strategic management;
  4. explain how to apply evidence-based best practice strategy analysis and execution;
  5. demonstrate a critical understanding of strategic management theories and current empirical research associated with the topics covered in this course; and,
  6. communicate effectively in oral and written forms about strategic management theories and their application using appropriate concepts, logic and rhetorical conventions.

Research-Led Teaching

This course draws on a range of scholarly disciplines, including management, economics, and sociology, to explore the nuanced field of strategic management. With a keen focus on identifying and applying theories and concepts to real-world business problems, students delve into the latest research from across these disciplines.

Required Resources

As part of this course, students are expected to read journal articles and book chapters that are assigned on a weekly basis. All assigned readings can be accessed via Wattle, and they are listed by week in the course schedule. While there is no designated textbook for the course, I strongly recommend that students also read "Strategic Management- Theory & Cases: An Integrated Approach, 14th edition" by Charles Hill and Melissa Schilling to gain a basic understanding of strategic management.

One physical copy of this book is available at the Chifley Library.

The 13th edition of the book is also available for free electronic access through the ANU library. Although this edition features slightly different chapters and cases, the mentioned chapters in the syllabus remain the same.

Additionally, the 14th edition can be purchased in either hardcopy or e-book format directly from the publisher.

ANU has educational policies, procedures and guidelines, which are designed to ensure that staff and students are aware of the University’s academic standards, and implement them. Students are expected to have read the Academic Misconduct Rule before the commencement of their course. Other key policies and guidelines include:

Assessment Requirements

The ANU is using Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website Students may choose not to submit assessment items through Turnitin. In this instance you will be required to submit, alongside the assessment item itself, hard copies of all references included in the assessment item.

Moderation of Assessment

Marks that are allocated during Semester are to be considered provisional until formalised by the College examiners meeting at the end of each Semester. If appropriate, some moderation of marks might be applied prior to final results being released.


I will be teaching this course in a face-to-face delivery mode on campus, and I highly encourage student participation in all classes and assessments in line with the “Code of Practice for Teaching and Learning”, clause 2 paragraph (b).. By engaging in in-class activities and discussions, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of various strategic management theories. Working on the strategy project as a group (Assessment tasks 1 and 3) will enable students to develop their ability to analyse an organisation's internal and external environments, apply evidence-based best practices for strategy analysis and execution, and effectively communicate their understanding of a range of theories in written and oral forms using appropriate concepts, models, and frameworks. Assessment tasks 2 and 4 will provide students with the opportunity to undertake an applied research project, help them develop a critical understanding of strategic management theories, and show their familiarity with current empirical research related to the course topics. These individual assessments will complement the learning outcomes achieved through the group projects.

Assessment Task 1

Value: 20 %
Due Date: 18/08/2023
Return of Assessment: 25/08/2023
Learning Outcomes: 2,3,4,6

Strategy project client memo (Group work and group assessment) - group size 5 (20%)

Given this is a course on strategy, it is only natural that one of the key assessment items is a strategy project

Strategy project client memo: a 250-word client memo

Strategy Project Client Memo is a group assignment that requires you to work with members of your group throughout the course. Each group has a maximum of 5 students assigned in Week 1. The case, which is the basis for the assignment, is depicted in "Dark Waters" in Week 2. Your objective is to design a convincing and viable strategy that effectively solves the problem(s) that the organisation in "Dark Waters" is facing.

Marking criteria for the assessment task 1

The marking criteria for the assessment task 1 require your memo to include the following: 

a) the organisation's goal and existing strategy implied or stated in the movie, 

b) your diagnosis of the problem/challenge/obstacle, and 

c) your recommendation, including an overall approach and related step(s) or action(s) to address or overcome the problem(s). You may want to acknowledge the pros and cons of the approach/action(s) in your recommendation.

Your memo should be no more than 250 words and must be double-spaced with 12-point font, Times New Roman, and 1” margins. A lengthy memo exceeding the word limit by 10% or more will result in a lower grade by the percentage of the exceeded amount.

Due Date: 2pm Friday, 18 August Week 4 through Turnitin on the course Wattle site

Assessment Task 2

Value: 25 %
Due Date: 20/10/2023
Return of Assessment: 27/10/2023
Learning Outcomes: 1,2,3,4,5,6

Strategy Write-up (Group work but individual assessment) (25%)

The second assessment task is to write up your group's strategy, which is due in Week 11 and should be 1000 words in length.

Strategy Write-up is a group report that requires all members of your group to work together (your group is assigned in Week 1). The case for the assignment is depicted in "Dark Waters" in Week 2. As a group, your objective is to identify the problem(s) that the organisation faces, analyse the organisation's existing strategies, and provide a convincing and viable strategy that effectively solves the problem(s) at hand. 

Marking criteria for the assessment task 2

The marking criteria for the assessment task 2 require your group report to include the following: 

a) diagnosis of problem(s)/challenge(s) that the organisation faces and its current strategy, using a theory that you have learned from the course, 

b) identification of the sources of the organisation's competitive advantage, and 

c) recommendation of a new strategy for the organisation to achieve sustained competitive advantage, based on the same theory that you use for doing a).

Your group report should be no more than 1000 words and must be double-spaced with 12-point font, Times New Roman, and 1” margins. A lengthy report exceeding the word limit by 10% or more will result in a lower grade by the percentage of the exceeded amount. Please ensure that the last page of your group report lists all references in APA style. The list of references is not included in the word count and will be graded separately for compliance with the APA style, with a maximum of 10% of the total grade.

Additionally, please note that each member of the group must include a separate page briefly outlining their individual contribution to the group report. This statement should specify who did what and to what extent each member contributed to the report (for example, Meredith spent 2 hours on proofreading the final report). The individual contribution statement should be no longer than half a page. It should be double-spaced, and written in Times New Roman font size 12 with 1" margins. This statement does not count towards the total word count for Strategy Write-up. The statement should be attached to the end of the group report when submitting the report.

Strategy presentation (Group work and group assessment) - group size 5 (25%)

The third assessment task is a 10 minute presentation of your group's strategy recommendation followed by 5 - 8 min Q&As

You will complete this as a group assigned in Week 1. You need to present your strategy to the organisation or your potential client, depicted in "Dark Waters" in Week 2. Each member of your group is expected to contribute to a portion of the group's presentation. While the strategy project client memo and strategy write-up are treated as individual assessments, the presentation will be marked as a group task. 

Marking criteria for the assessment task 3

Your group presentation should include the following.

a) Choice of a theory, an analysis, or a model you have learned from the course (Avoid lengthy summaries of the individual theory, analysis, or model that you choose).

b) Diagnosis of problem(s)/challenge(s) that the organisation faces and its current strategy, based on a).

c) Identification of the sources of the organisation's competitive advantage, according to a).

d) Recommendation of a new strategy for the organisation to achieve sustained competitive advantage, based on a) (you may want to have a look at Rumelt's article in Week 1).

e) Facilitation of in-class discussion using well-thought-out questions and answers. Do NOT ask obvious questions, such as "do you think my presentation skills are good?".

Group presentations will be recorded via Echo360, which will enable later validation and verification of assessment if required (in accordance with ANU Student Assessment (Coursework) policy).

Due Date: Friday 20 October. Slides to be submitted via Turnitin by 2pm, 13 October. Presentations will take place in Week 11.

Assessment Task 4

Value: 30 %
Due Date: 02/11/2023
Return of Assessment: 30/11/2023
Learning Outcomes: 1,2,3,4,5,6

Reflective review (Individual assessment) (30%)

The fourth assessment task is a 3-minute reflective video on classmate's group strategy and a 1000-word script for the video.

For this assessment, you will be tasked with preparing a single-blind review of your classmate's group strategy based on their group presentation in Week 11. Following the group presentation, each student will enter their name and spin the wheel to select a group which they will review. To complete this assessment, you must have a comprehensive understanding of one or more theories from the course and apply this knowledge to evaluate the strategy chosen by your classmate's group. You may choose one or two theories to analyse their strategy and suggest alternatives if necessary.

The term "single-blind" means that you will know the identity of the group, but they will not know who you are. It is essential to maintain a professional tone when reviewing their work and avoid being rude, insulting, or inappropriate in any way. Your criticism should be constructive and focus on specific, actionable changes that could realistically improve their proposed strategy. Additionally, you should take into account all the constraints of the group assignments.

Marking criteria for the assessment task 4

Your review (both your video and script) will be graded by the instructor, based on a judgment of:

1) How well the review identifies pros and cons of the proposed strategy, based on the theory, analysis, or model that the classmate's group chose.

2) How constructive and helpful your review is to the classmate.

3) How useful your review is to the client.

Your 3-minute video and 1000-word script should cover the following topics:

a) A concise summary of your classmate's group proposed strategy, along with a brief explanation of the primary theory they chose.

b) Your personal reflection on the theory and its implications.

c) An evaluation of the strengths of the theory and their proposed strategy.

d) A critique of the weaknesses of the theory and their proposed strategy.

e) Your recommendation of an alternative strategy, preferably based on the same theory that your classmate's group drew on.

f) Your conclusion, including to what extent your proposed alternative would be more beneficial to the client.

To complete this assignment, you will need to record and submit a 3-minute video along with your script. Imagine you are in the instructor's shoes and explain the gist of your classmate's group strategy to others. Your task is to summarize your critical assessment of their strategy, including the main theory they used, the pros and cons of that theory, and any other important aspects, in an entertaining and engaging manner. Keep in mind that you should NOT read the script and that you should feature yourself in the video.

It is important to keep in mind the 3-minute time limit. Any videos that exceed this limit by 10% or more will receive a lower grade based on the percentage of the exceeded time. Your script should be no longer than 1000 words, and you will not be penalized for producing a shorter script that covers all the required topics from a) to f). However, if your script exceeds the word limit by 10% or more, your grade will be lowered accordingly.

Your script must be double-spaced, with 12-point font in Times New Roman, and 1-inch margins. Please include a separate page listing all references in APA style. The list of references is not included in the word count. However, it will be graded based on its compliance with the APA style, with a maximum of 10% of the total grade.

Late submissions are NOT allowed for this assessment task.

Due Date: 5pm Friday, 2 November Week 13 through Turnitin on the course Wattle site
