You are a strategic analyst for a large consulting firm and specialise in the analysis of Australian companies. You have been asked by your manager to write a report analysing an Australian company's underlying strategy that has resulted in it moving some of its activities offshore with the loss of a number of local jobs.
Note: You are able to choose any Australian company.
In your analysis you are required to:
- Evaluate the external issues that are affecting the company and have driven it to employ a strategy that has resulted in moving jobs offshore.
- Analyse the internal issues that are making the company consider moving jobs offshore as part of its strategy.
- Identify the stakeholders in this company and discuss how the shift of offshore activities will affect these stakeholders.
- Explain why a number of jobs will continue to be based in Australia and the associated implications
