Discussion Post 4
Based on the SWOT of Toyota included in chapter 6 (print: p. 217-218; ebook: p. 250), please consider the following questions to help guide your analysis: (1) Which strengths could Toyota make better use of in the future? (2) Which weaknesses are most important for the company to address? (3) Is Toyota well positioned to take advantage of all its current external opportunities? and (4) Which external threats should it prioritize, and why? Use your answer to these four questions to provide advice to Toyota’s CEO Akio Toyoda, specifically, whether (or not) the company has competitive advantage. (CLO 3, 4, 5)
