Tesla’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & threats

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has employed you as a consultant to assess the company’s overall situation and recommend a set of actions to improve the company’s future prospects. Please prepare a report to Mr. Hastings that includes:

(1) an evaluation of competitive forces in the market for subscription video on demand,

(2) an assessment of Tesla’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats,

(3) an identification of the primary components of Tesla’s international strategy,

(4) an evaluation of Tesla’s financial and operating performance as displayed in case Exhibits 2, and

(5) a set of action recommendations that Tesla’s top executive team should initiate in order to sustain the company’s growth and performance. Your report should be 5–6 pages, plus it should include an assortment of original (not copied from the case!) charts, tables, and exhibits to support your analysis and recommendations.
Tesla’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & threats

Your report should be no less than 1500 words (word count does not include title page, abstract, references or exhibits). The report should be in APA format.

Your report should answer:

What are the chief elements of Elon Musk’s overall leadership and managerial style? How well is it working? Is his style evolving?
Explain Tesla’s business model. How — if at all — has it changed under Musk’s leadership? What grade does Musk deserve for his efforts thus far?

Tesla’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & threats

How would you rate Elon Musk in terms of the three main managerial areas used to build an organization, as shown in Figure 10.1? Which are strengths, and which are areas for improvement?
What is your assessment of Tesla’s recent financial performance under Musk’s leadership? (Use the financial ratios in the Appendix of the text or in Figure 4.1 as a guide in doing your financial analysis.)
What recommendations would you make to Elon Musk to allow Tesla to strengthen its position in its most important markets?
Your report should be written from the perspective of employee to employer and not as a student to instructor. You should not reference the “Case” in this context. In other words you have been given a task by an employer and should be addressing the employer.
