The brief: 1. In groups of 5-6, analyse the situation at Aggro Stores, considering the competitive environment and financial constraints. Aspects of the problem are best shared out amongst the group. 2. Consider the likely outcomes, financial and otherwise, of the options that the manager has offered and seek optimal outcomes. 3. In a report of not more than 4,000 words produce a five year plan that the manager and the Chairman can present to the Board as a way forward for the business that will ensure its future prosperity. You should include budgets and cash flow forecasts for the alternatives and show clearly (in appendices) how you have arrived at the numbers that you present. Clearly justify in the report the choices you have made, discussing in particular how you think the customers and competitors will respond to the actions of Aggro. Remember, there is not one correct way forward in this case. There are a range of options that depend on the quality of the manager’s information and the likely responses of the competition and the customer base. Credit will be given for creative solutions. You should not restrict yourself to the information that has been provided, but should reflect on other factors and opportunities as well.
Your paper should be formatted in the 7th edition APA style and include references as required.
