Personal Reflection Paper

Name: [enter your name here]

This semester we have used strategic management principles to understand existing and nascent businesses. We have used the AFI framework; 1) to
analyze the firm and its environment, 2) to use these analyses to
formulate strategy, and 3) to design and structure organizations to best
implement the chosen strategy. I want you to turn the analysis self-ward and to analyze yourself as a potential business – you create value, you generate revenue, you incur costs either as an employee or as a self-employed entrepreneur.

Section 1 (external analysis)
Identify the job/business that you plan to work within. If you are still figuring out your plan, that’s great, choose a job/business that you would consider working in.

What is the job that you intend to do after graduation (if planning graduate school, then after graduate school). Same as above – if you do not yet know choose something you are considering or would realistically be interested in. [enter your answer here]

Describe the industry that this job is in (e.g., who are some of the existing firms or players in this industry, what technologies are being used, who are the customers…). [enter your answer here]

Do a Porter’s Five Forces analysis on this industry (not on yourself, do it on the industry)

1) Power of Suppliers to the Industry [enter your answer here]

2) Power of Buyers to the Industry [enter your answer here]

3) Rivalry among Existing Competitors within the Industry [enter your answer here]

4) Threat of New Entrants to the industry [enter your answer here]

5) Threat of Substitute Products/Services to the Industry’s Products/Services [enter your answer here]

Your overall conclusion, is this an attractive (profitable) industry to be in? Do you see this changing over time? [enter your answer here]
