The management theory the word strategy should be the planning process of the long term projects and that should be used to explain an activity of senoir managers perform to achieve the company goals. Johnson and Scholes, for example in Exploring Corporate Strategy, define the strategic plan as, “the direction and the scope of the company over the long term, ideally which it is matching its resources to its changing environment and in particular its markets, customers and clients so as to meet stakeholder expectations”.

When I am going to start my assignment one by one following questions I want to explain about my company. My company name is Anna Aluminum Company which is situated in Kerala, India.
I select this company because it is very famous and successful company in Kerala, India. Every human being needs vessels in this world to cook and any other use. The Anna Aluminum is making very good brand products. Because of these reason they become very successful in market. Anna Aluminum got ISI certificate because of their product is very good. This company is making a good turn over. The county is getting more revenue from this company. Some other people tried to start Aluminum company in Kerala, but they could not make success in their field and they could loose their confidence in this field. Anna Aluminum is making new products. They are the fast growing company in Kerala. In this company, I noticed management is very strong. The owner is a right person to take decisions. He is not a qualified person. He appointed a highly qualified manager in his company. He is taking all decisions about the company apart from the owner. Operational level people are also professionals in this company. The company is looking the employee's welfare always. The company is providing food and accommodation for all employees.
Stakeholders are very important in each and every organisation. With out stakeholder, the company cannot improve the profit and sales. The money is an important factor in any organisation. Without stakeholder, company cannot achieve the goals. Every organisation sometimes get struggle to make more products because of the money problem. In this case, organisation need stake holders. A stakeholder in the organisation should be any person or a group of people who is interest in the success of the business.
In my organisation Anna Aluminum has a different stakeholders like:
Government: government is one of the stakeholders in my company. If the company needs to develop or make new products they need government permission. Government should provide the energy and the resources. The government is interested to improve the company production because government can earn revenue from the company.
Shareholders: shareholders are another group in company. They have share in company. If company is in loss, they have to put money from their pocket. In this reason, they are very interested in company success. In my company shareholders are providing the dividend expense increase, split price increase and also the expansion of share price rate.
Local community: In Anna Aluminum company local community, they also play a fundamental role for my company. The local people help them to give land for the company development. Local community is the different groups like neighbors, municipalty, panjayat and other communities. They can create problems sometimes.
Environment: environment is the one of the important stakeholder for my company. Environment provides that different benefits.
Management: Anna group is a big company and they have all departments like human resources, event, marketing and other departments. My company Anna Group has the top level management. The company provides more external fund for this company. These stakeholders are having a important role in my company Anna Aluminum.
Each organisation has the some type of criteria that will be considered that when it is reviewing the management strategy plan. If anyone wants to improve more benefit from the part of the strategic planning, then they have to make some sort of the criteria. Anna group always provide some strategic planning and they are making benefits from the strategic planning. Most decisions through strategic planning including the most senior levels in organisations are not based upon objective, evidence-based assessments of the whole situation. They are some what more subjective and are made to fit the perception of the circumstances at the time they are made.
The rational model of strategy that would appeal the FW Taylor (the father of scientific management) would be thought through in advance, top down and structured. The reality is that strategy formulation in the real world is some what less planned, bottom up as much as top down and more emergent than structured. Hence strategy appears through the mist as the organisation progresses rather than being a sought after destination. The strategic planning should be systematic, profit maximization, evolutionary procession, pluralistic outcome and strategy process emergent. The classical approach aims at profit-maximization but regards long term planning as less valuable in a turbulent environment than simple survival and quick adaptability.
Strategic planning is the more important for any of the organisation. Without the strategic planning, the company cannot develop their business. Strategic planning is needed from the company starting to life long. Through the strategic management, we can find out where is the position of the company right now. Every business strategy should be consider about in overall business objectives and the personal business objectives also. Through the strategic planning only the company can improve their production and they can develop their business. All companies should have the future plan that is making through the strategic planning. The company should look after the future. Everything should be doing with the project base.
From any company make sure that what customer needs and the company have to analysis about the customer needs. The company make sure that not only the customer but also the market should be satisfy with the product and the company. The strategic planning must have to improve it strategic objective and it in a simple way.
Feasibility studies: A feasibility study is saying about the company primary steps of work. The feasibility study takes three like, a detailed and basic report, a small research and other.
In Anna group company has some different potential strategy that should be developed. Because this is an aluminum company, so they have some potential strategy like,
Marketing strategy: marketing strategy is very important for any of the organization. There are a lot of different types of marketing strategy like the new marketing segmentation and the marketing distribution channel. Market strategy should take more important and make it very clearly to improve the sales in market.
Product development: product development is the another strategy in strategic management. Each and every organization is trying to develop their product. Because the company has organizational development is depends on the product. If the company has some problems within the product the company cannot develop the organization. The product quality is important in today's market. Same products different companies are giving now. The customers will go behind the quality product. In this industry, Anna group is number one to give the quality product in market. There are many kinds of products development in market, like product modification through new features. This means everyone have to improve and produces some product and that should be better quality one and the more exceptional, for example some different types of ready products that we have to exist in the market.

Anna group is very good for this. Any income group can afford Anna group products.
Every organization will have some vision and mission. Without vision and mission, the company can not establish or new product. And also in my company as well have some vision and mission.

The communication is the important element of success of any company strategic development as well as in the market. Every people know that without effective communication, any organization can not run in future. If anyone wants to do the strategic planning, they have to talk with the manager; in this case they need proper communication to do that strategic planning. My company has the good relationship with the customers. My company product is very good that's why my company can able to win in the market easily
