Strategy Evaluation

Strategy evaluation is vital to an organization’s well-being (success); timely evaluations can alert management to problems or potential problems before a situation becomes critical.

  • Moreover: Strategy evaluation is essential to ensure that stated “annual” objectives are being achieved.

3: Taking Corrective action:

  • taking corrective action, requires making changes to reposition a firm, competitively, for the future (e.g. alteration of the implemented strategy).
    • Examples of changes that may be needed are: altering an organization’s structure; replacing one or more key individuals; selling a division; or revising a business mission.
  • However taking corrective action raises employees’ and managers’ anxieties.
    • Research suggests that participation in strategy-evaluation activities is one of the best ways to overcome individuals’ resistance to change (implementation).

Strategy Review, Evaluation, & Control


  • Strategy-evaluation activities must be economical; too much information can be just as bad as too little information.
  • Strategy-evaluation activities should also be meaningful; they should specifically relate to a firm’s objectives.
  • Strategy-evaluation activities should provide timely information; on occasion and in some areas, managers may need information daily.
  • Strategy evaluation should be designed to provide a true picture of what is happening.

Modern Challenges in strategic Management:

  • Currently the “process” is more an “art” than “science”
  • Should strategies be visible or hidden from stakeholders
    • Visible: Participation and openness enhances understanding, commitment, and communication within the firm.
    • Hidden: Secrecy limits rival firms from imitating or duplicating the firm’s strategies and undermining the firm.
  • Should process be more top-down or bottom up
    • Top executives are the only persons in the firm with the collective experience…; to make key strategy decisions.
    • Lower- and middle-level managers and employees who will be implementing the strategies need to be actively involved in the process of formulating the strategies to assure their support and commitment.
