It is a suggested format for a strategic action plan for a single-business enterprise.

It may be noted that strategic action plans for a diversified company having-several lines of business are much more complicated.

However, diversified companies must also develop strategic action plans under their corporate umbrella for each Strategic Business Unit.

Thus far, we have discussed strategy formulation in the context of a single-business enterprise. Each business firm/unit can choose a cost leadership strategy, differentiation strategy, focus strategy, best cost leadership strategy, or combination.

Finally, the firm needs to tailor its chosen strategy to the situations prevailing in the firm’s industry and the situations of the firm itself.

Many firms/companies have moved from single-business to multiple-businesses. Strategy formulation in a multi-­business company is much more complicated than in a single­business firm. The multi-business firms are known as ‘diversified companies’.
