The president and sole employee of a firm in Guelph, Ontario, which specializes in the importation, processing and sale of high quality souvenir spoons, is becoming increasingly frustrated with the pace at which his business is developing. The owner must decide whether he should operate the business full time, part time or at all. This case can be used in a strategy formulation course to illustrate the power of a well-defined strategy.
The objective of this case is to provide students with the opportunity to apply the basic framework used for Strategy Formulation to a situation with which they should be able to readily come to grips.
