It identifies and analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of various strategic alternatives, makes recommendations, and provides an implementation plan to allow GWL to adopt the recommended strategy.

Situational Analysis

Current Mission & Vision

GWL has no official mission or vision statements, however the implied statements are as follows:

To offer superior products and roof management solutions to ICI customers in Central and Eastern Canada and North Eastern US at premium prices. Vision

A thorough analysis of the external environment in which GWL operates has been completed, including an industry value curve, uncovering two key opportunities:
