NOTE: students in Prof. Power's classes may wish to use this Strategic Planning/Business guide.
These pages are intended to help you find information needed to conduct a strategic analysis. The first two sections below focus on industries and other external environment factors, while the next two cover company organization, operations, and various other internal factors. However, many sources in these first four sections cover companies, industries, and various internal and external factors. The fifth section notes academic ethics issues such as proper citation of the sources you use for your projects.
Some of the sources on these pages are available in print at Rod Library; the call numbers, such as UNI Reference Desk BF76.7 .P83 2001, are listed below such titles. Electronic sources purchased by Rod Library require UNI CatID log-in for off-campus access.
The following library user guides provide more details on information sources covering companies, industries, and other business topics.
