To prepare for this Discussion, review the “Cisco Systems: Growth Through Diversification and Acquisition” case found on pages 98-99 of Dyer, Godfrey, Jensen, and Bryce (2020) and consider how companies can utilize diversification strategies to create organizational value and competitive advantage.
Post a comparison of corporate strategy versus business-unit-level strategy. In your comparison, address the following:
- How does corporate strategy differentiate from a business-unit-level strategy, including advantages and disadvantages of each?
- Which approach for diversification (related-constrained or related-linked) has the strongest return on investment in this case study? Explain, including at least one supportive example.
- In your opinion as an independent scholar, why does diversification most often fail to add value? Explain with at least one supportive example.
- What factors should executives consider when making a decision to diversify through green field entry over making an acquisition? Explain.
Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and at least one additional scholarly source.
