3 Strategy The success of a company over time is described by its strategy. The future stands on the ability to find the direction to recreate the conditions for growth, even under uncertainty and a very fast global changing environment. Strategic change and complexity management are the main issues of the new millennium both for economics and business. This course introduces the concept of strategic management and considers the basic direction and goals of an organization, industry and market structure, and organizational strengths and weaknesses in highly uncertain business environments. Moreover, a great emphasis is put on the strategic evolution driven by the fast technological disruptive innovation, a kind of innovation with the power to undermine traditional strategic plans in a matter of months or even days. Therefore the course deals with the strategic game-changing paradigms, because the devastating innovation holds great potential for those who can quickly learn the new rules of unencumbered development, un-constrained growth, and undisciplined strategy. 3

4 Cloud storage price wars continue: Dropbox 90% prices drop (Aug 27,2014) [1 / 3] On Aug 27, 2014 Dropbox slashed its price as the cost of a gigabyte nears zero. They used to cost $9.99 per month for 100GB. Under the new scheme, Dropbox plan is $9.99 per month for 1TB of file storage. Prices were cut by 90% as the online storage firm looks to compete with the likes of Microsoft and Google Drive and the coming Apple icloude Drive. On March 2014 Google dropped the price of 1TB storage on Google Drive by 80% to $9.99 per month. Microsoft charges $2.50/ month on OneDrive or $6.99 per month with an Office 365 subscription. On June 2014 Apple unveiled icloud Drive, a multiplatform service set to roll out with OS X Yosemite and ios 8. Price will be unveiled on Sep 9,

5 Cloud storage price wars continue: Dropbox 90% prices drop (Aug 27,2014) [2 / 3] Dropbox features very easy to use sync apps work well on most platforms get nice photo sharing features attach a password to shared links set expiry dates remotely wipe content if the phone gets stolen good brand with 300 M users Main competitors Microsoft offers Office 365 along with 1 TB at a lesser price Google has better integration with other Google services and offers more options in terms of pricing Apple's forthcoming icloud Drive will presumably be better integrated with Apple's ecosystem 5

6 Group Task: Dropbox prices cut by 90% is a suicide strategy? [3 / 3] What s the competitive advantage of Dropbox? How it will be sustainable on the long-term? Will Dropbox survive as a company or it will be acquired by a powerful incumbent? Storage is becoming a commodity, services are not Which strategy in the near future for Dropbox? Prepare 1-2 slides. You have 30 min of time 6

7 Strategic Management Strategic Management is the set of managerial decision and action that determines the long-run performance of a corporation. It has now evolved to the point that its primary value is to help the organization to operate successfully in a dynamic, complex and unpredictable environment. Corporations must develop a flexible approach shifting from one dominant strategy to another. Strategic flexibility demands a long term commitment to the development and nurturing of critical resources. The company should act as a Learning Organization skilled at creating, acquiring, and transferring knowledge and at modifying its behavior to reflect new knowledge and insights. Learning organizations avoid stability through continuous self-assessment and experimentations. 7

9 Case studies In addition to theories, many industry and business case studies are discussed during the classes. The cases are written for business programs worldwide and focus on actual problems and decisions companies face. Case studies are powerful tools to investigate a topic on which you want to focus combining a qualitative and a quantitative way. A main issue is the relationship between strategy, evolution and long-term performance. You will learn analytical techniques to check the competitive position of a firm, evaluate business strategies, and identify and analyze specific business options. These concepts and frameworks will help you to face complex and unstructured problems in business strategy, in order to provide a solid foundation for managerial decision making. Students are asked to download and read the material for a very proactive in-class discussion of the case. 9
