Strategy Mapping & The Learning and Growth Perspective

Explain the process of strategy mapping and how it relates to performance management and establishing value propositions. You may discuss this theoretically or use the Glacier Inn case study presented in Armitage and Scholey (2009) to serve as an example for integrating these ideas. Alternatively, you can use the Hazard Action Zone case study presented in Murby and Gold (2005) if you’d prefer. Armitage, H., & Scholey, C. (2006). Using strategy maps to drive performance.

Discuss how either Glacier Inn or Hazard Action Zone effectively used strategic mapping (or how they failed to do so).Conclusion: Wrap up your argument with a clear and cogent synopsis of your findings. Do your best to convince your reader (aka, your professor) as to your position.Additional Instructions: Your essay should be 3 to 4 pages in length (not counting your title page or references). You must include a list of references. APA formatting is preferred. Do not paste in sections of text into your essay. All of your work must be written in your own words. It’s OK to use a short quote now and again, but quotations must be in quotation marks and properly cited. In-text citations should be used anytime you are borrowing somebody else’s ideas, or information. That is to say, if you are borrowing a thought from a publication from J. Neutron’s article written in 2010, that section of text must be followed with (Neutron, 2010). Quotations, data, and general ideas (put into your own words) should all be cited.
