Assignment requirements and format You may work alone or with 1 to 2 partners, total of no more than 3 persons. If you work with others, you all get same grade. Use the maps given at the end of this handout, which includes three types of variable (environmental factors, the Store’s strategy/actions, and the Store’s strengths and weaknesses) in three kinds of shapes. Don’t change shapes and headings. Must type your answers in the shapes – Don’t use all capital letters. But you may handwrite down +/- signs. Your answers can be in sentences or phrases, but the answers have to be clear in its meanings. For example, if you put “customer service” as a strength, it is unclear. If you put “superior customer service”, it is fine. If you put “bad employees” as a weakness, it is vague. If you put “Employees are not knowledgeable,” it is fine.
