This course explores the relationship between strategy and organization at two levels: the level of the firm and (mostly) the level of the extended value chain.

The key issue may be described in one sentence: "View an industrial organisation, at the level of the firm ant at the level of an extended value chain as "contingent to a strategy".

A strategy here means competitive advantage based on a value proposition.
