1289 words - 5 pages

IntroductionWWK began in 1989. The major business is to trip the tourists for whale watch in Kaikoura. In last 15 years, WWK's fixed assets increased at least 55 times. WWK think that the successful result came from the professional community. They need a strategy plan for next five years. Barry Botherway have appointed the group of consultant (named "sweet") to prepare this Board paper. In this board paper, we think WWK have the excellent vision, values and mission statement for their organizations. We are going to make a five-year Strategy by point out the risks, opportunities and strength from both internal and external analysis. Functional strategies are applied for support.Vision, values and mission statementWWK is becoming a famous brand of whale watch in world wide. The vision statement of WWK was "Kaikoura the Meeting Place". It is also the basic for the values of WWK's organization, which are culturally acceptable, economically viable and environmentally sustainable activities. These three values are interrelated: natural environment is the core resource for the company to keep its long run economical viable. All of the activities from either economical viability or cultural acceptability must follow the basic element which is environment protecting.

As New Zealand is named as the last haven in the world, there are many great alternatives for tourists to enjoy the wonderful natural travel, such as harbour, Rotorua and Waitomo Caves in North Island, Mount Aoraki(cook), Milford Sound, Queenstown in South Island. ( Cotton, W) This situation also raises the threat from customers as they have more choices. How to attract local and oversea tourists from other substitution is a significant issue in our five-year strategy.Threat from suppliers is eliminated due to the business is in tourism industry and there are plenty of supplier for organization. However, there is less threat from domestic competitors than inter national competitors as WWK is the sole-based whale watching operator in NZ and there is barriers for new entrants by the rules of permission from...
