Pattern in Corporate Evolution

This chapter focuses on mapping corporate strategy and its application to an analysis of the recent strategies pursued by five large UK corporations, namely, Cadbury Schweppes, Thorn EMI, Ladbroke, Trafalgar House, and Hillsdown Holdings. It begins by discussing the basis for constructing maps at corporate level and then examines the five strategies in detail. The chapter then explores the possibility of using maps of the corporation as a basis for analysing possible sources of internal economies and external threats.
