Conducting aSituation Analysis (2 of 2)
discussion question
Discussion Question
  • Of the three major environments in a situation analysis (internal, customer, external), which do you think is the most important in a general sense? Why? What are some situations that would make one environment more important than the others?

An important input to later stages in the planning process

Poor or declining performance must be the result of:

Goals or objectives that are inconsistent with the customer or external environments

Flawed marketing strategy

Poor implementation

Changes in the customer or external environments that are beyond the control of the firm

The Internal Environment (1 of 2)
