With your particular mix of resources, does this strategy give you an advantageous position relative to your competitors? Can you pursue this strategy more economically than your competitors? Do you have the capital and managerial talent to do all you plan to do? Are you spread too thin? 2. Does your strategy fit with current industry conditions? Is there healthy profit potential where you're headed? Are you aligned with the key success factors of your industry? 3. Will your differentiators be sustainable? Will competitors have difficulty imitating you? If imitation cannot be foreclosed, does your strategy include a ceaseless regimen of innovation and opportunity creation to keep distance between you and the competition? 4. Are the elements of your strategy consistent and aligned with your strategic position? Have you made choices of arenas, vehicles, differentiators, staging, and economic logic? Do they fit and mutually reinforce each other? 5. Can your strategy be implemented?Will your stakeholders allow you to pursue this strategy? Do you have the proper complement of implementation levers in place? Is the management team able and willing to lead the required changes?
