After reading the scenario above and the readings in the text for Unit 3, what do you think are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) that the business faces if Dalman and Lei commit to a large-scale expansion of their business?
I think that Dalman and Lei main strength is making the first step about agreeing on expanding the company. They know that it will be a big commitment and lots of planning but with a huge success. By expanding the franchise with two new locations, they have an opportunity to put them in different cities. It will gain them different customers and create more jobs or promotions for the people. Depending on where the locations are placed in the city areas it will have a larger new customers. They already have eight successful businesses and adding two more will produce more income coming in.
Opening up more businesses is going to be a big responsibility and they are going to need a successful plan to achieve these goal. Dalman and Lei one weakness is not already having the time to sit down and come up with a plan of action due to problems already going on in the company. The two are stretched out to thin and they are going to need to figure out a way to deal with those problems first and more on to the next. Dalman and Lei are going to have to have a meeting with all the managers of the other locations and brainstorm some ideas on how to fix the problems.
Dalman and Lei are going to face with some threats at first when expending the company if they don’t use perfect planning. They are going to have to pick the right locations for the success of the company. That is going to have to take research and going out to see the locations. They are going to have to discuss how to train the new employees coming in or if they are promoting within. They are going to have to figure out a budget plan on how much they are going to need for these new locations. They have to see if the new locations are well...
