a. Pros: Enables the company to more quickly capture and respond to local trends and increase competitiveness (Wheelen & Hunger, 2010). b. Cons: Aggressive competition (Shavera) 3. Retrenchment Strategy: Sell Out/Divestment Strategy. a. Pros: Allows the company to exit out of markets like the personal computers that are struggling and unprofitable. b.

26 B. Recommended Strategy Recommend alternative # 2 which is the Horizontal Growth Strategy. Haier Company needs to focus on niche markets in the U.S. to satisfy those customers’ wants and needs.

28 (Travis) VII. Implementation A. Competition for Haier is all over the place. Finding something like a new hit product that will make them stick out over all the rest will benefit the company highly. However they need to be careful to spend their money in the right areas and make sure it doesn’t go to waste ending in a overall bankrupt.

29 (Travis) B. Haier needs to improve its stocking abilities by using technology to their advantage. They seem to lack in keeping popular items on hand and ready to ship. Using technology will help them keep up with what sells out the quickest in various locations.
