This assignment is designed for you to identify and analyse the elements that define the challenge faced by the partner organisation. You are to present your analysis in a business report format. This involves undertaking an external and internal SWOT analysis of the organisation and making predictions about its potential role engaging with the case study organisation. You will build out the SWOT analysis by nesting other theories into the SWOT as discussed in the Topic 3 lecture.
How to think about the big picture:
Overall management challenge: The FFCRC, as an R&D organisation, helps energy businesses design solutions to technical & management problems. This semester, we will advise the FFCRC on the best way to approach the business development challenges of the REIDS-SPORE Demonstration Project.
A1 is designed as a SWOT analysis that you build out using other strategic management theories to analyse how the FFCRC (as an R&D organisation) functions as a knowledge generation resource for businesses in the energy sector (in Australia and also Singapore)
A2 is an analysis of management strategies that might be needed to promote the adoption of one of four energy products created by the REIDS SPORE Project (listed in A2 instructions) by businesses in Singapore.
A3, is a synthesis of what you have learned in A1 and A2 together to design a business model / roadmap for FFCRC to present to the REIDS-SPORE executives about how the two organisations could work together to deliver an energy solution to a range of business sectors in a socially & environmentally appropriate way.
