Description

The Grand Strategy Matrix template is a useful framework as part of the strategic planning process to suggest alternative long-term strategies for the organisation.

The Grand Strategy Matrix template has four Quadrants. Each Quadrant suggests different strategies.

Organizations use Grand Strategies, sometimes called master strategies, to provide long-term strategic direction as it pursues its long-term (5 to 10 year) objectives.

Long-term strategic objectives are typically established under the following headings:

  • Profitability
  • Market Share/Revenue
  • Supply chain productivity
  • Competitive positioning
  • Technological Leadership
  • Employee development
  • Corporate Responsibility

The four Quadrants relate to Market Growth Rate and the Relative Competitive Position of the organisation, i.e.

Quadrant 1: Rapid Growth, Strong Position

Quadrant 2: Rapid Growth, Weak Position

Quadrant 3: Low Growth, Weak Position

Quadrant 4: Low Growth, Strong Position

Each quadrant suggests different strategic options to organisations which are positioned in the relevant quadrants.

Typical strategies suggested by the Grand Strategy matrix are:

Quadrant 1: Rapid Growth, Strong Position

Product and Market Development

Market Penetration

Integration (Backward, Forward or both)

Concentric Diversification

Quadrant 2: Rapid Growth, Weak Position
