Strategic Management3IntroductionStrategic management is defined as the administration of a company’s assets in order toaccomplish its objectives and aims. According toFreeman (2010), strategic Managementincludes setting goals, examining the competitive atmosphere, inspecting the internalmanagement, assessing the techniques and methods, and ensuring that management rolls out thetechniques across the organization. This report critically examines the common and dissimilarfactors between the evolutionary and processual schools of strategy explained by Whittington.The report also analyzed the synchronization of these schools challenges with the contemporaryissues. The main purpose of this report is to gain knowledge about strategic management, thephases of strategy and the considerations that must be created before constructing the idealtechnique.Whittington’s approaches to strategyAccording toHittet al. (2012), Whittington’s approaches to strategy are a normal and intendedway to deal with techniques formulation with a unitary goal of profit maximization. The mainschools of strategy such as an evolutionary and processual strategy to approach are explained asfollows (Golsorkhi et al., 2010):An evolutionary approach to strategy: According toCox et al., (2016), the Whittington'sEvolutionary Approach to strategy depends on the conviction that the economic development isconstantly evolving. The evolutionary way to strategy is a new way to deal with procedure plan,it depends on the capacity of the market to secure a unitary objective of profit maximization.This approach is formulated with survival as their targets. This characterization is impacted byeconomics and science and strategic plan in completed on the premise of the outside variables,mainly the market. The techniques which come under this approach are short-term techniqueswhich are created in order to survive in the market and not to manage in the long term. Thecompanies which pursue these techniques are limited and only consider the present and not thefuture. The environmental school of strategy recommends Mintzberg come under theevolutionary viewpoint towards the procedure. For example, Starbucks aims is to re-looking at
Strategic Management4the strategic methods is a good example of an evolutionary approach to strategy which creatingan emotional relationship by bringing together the ideal of the human soul with the local.According toCantwellet al. (2010), to encourage and sustain the human soul is a huge callingand want and afterward to create it locally with one individual, one glass, and one neighborhoodpresents to everything to the heart (Finnegan et al., 2010). Workers can feel this reason andembody it while customers feel the reality of that objective every period he or she visits a localStarbucks.Processual approach to strategy: According toFearonet al. (2013), the processualapproach techniques are formulated with undefined goals. This characterization is impacted bypsychology and strategic plan is done on the basis of the internal variables, most of the part ispolitics and viewpoint. The techniques which come under this approach consists high risk andthe companies adopting these techniques are extremely risk-oriented (Fragueiro and Thomas,2011). These companies set up a technique to ensure whether it is correct or not and then manageit if it is unsuccessful. The cognitive and the learning school of the strategic plan proposed byMintzberg come under the processual point of view towards the system. Whittington approachto strategy gives the idea that in the processual approach technique rises from regular operationsof the authoritative qualities and from the market forms, strategies are best created in a middle-up-down incremental process (Brown and Thompson, 2013). In terms of the goal to be achieved,processual researchers believe that the organization's goal is not always the same that is profitmaximization, however, that it is affected by the particular circumstance the organization endsup in at a specific timeframe.Similarities and dissimilarities between Evolutionary and Processualapproach to strategyAccording toGeorge and Bock (2011), the evolutionary and processual approaches both are themethods of strategy are very imperative for organizations to have in mind before crafting atechnique and these approaches help the business to teach how to monitor the strategies in orderto have the ideal strategy. The main similarities and dissimilarities between these two approachesare explained as follows:
