In chapter 1 “Strategic Leadership: Managing the Strategy-Making Process for Competitive Advantage” and chapter 2 “External Analysis: The Identification of Opportunities and threats,” there are trends in the strategies that a company pursues. For instance, if a company manager seeks strategies that are of negative value to the enterprise, it fails. On the other side, if a company manager pursues policies that are of positive value to the company, it succeeds. Therefore, a company manager should research on the strategies they would like to apply to all project of the company and ensure they bring in more value to it. Otherwise, it is wrong for a manager to undertake strategies that are too costly and only bring losses to the company. As a college student, this trend helps me learn more about the best requirements of a company manager and this stands me a chance of securing such a job. I can know that strategies are necessary concerning the development of a company and therefore, I would work on advancing this skill to fit into the current career world.
Another trend is how to identify threats and opportunities within a company and use them to make more profits. This trend is quite educative as all businesses are expected to learn of the threats and opportunities an individual project brings forth to the enterprise. As a college student, I would take this opportunity and study further on SWOT analysis to acquire knowledge applicable in the job market. This, in the end, will help me secure a job and offer the best of my skills. As a person, I would help companies gain knowledge of the available opportunities a project has since it is necessary for the final analysis. I would also do the same for the threats side.
