Identify and analyse 3 challenges that are being faced by the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust (Internal, External & Competitive)
Refer briefly to the issues mentioned in TASK 1 as a way of kick-starting your discussion in Task 2 (e.g. “as a result of the increase in population as discussed in Task 1…..”).
Use SWOT, MCKINSEY 7 Ss, etc, to identify specific effect of each strategic issue on your ORGANISATION. • Find and present some examples of such effects in your organisation or others in the same sector (this may be in the form of news reports, annual reports, industry gazettes, articles, etc).

Find and present examples of how and where these propositions may have worked in other places (e.g. if your solution is to train staff to improve customer service quality, then find and present cases in other orgs where training of staff has resulted in improved customer service, etc).
You may also look for academic journals that support the use of such method as a problem-solving technique.
Use the likes of Porter’s Generic Strategies, Ansoff, etc, to discuss which pathway your proposed solution is following – is it product development, market penetration, diversification, cost leadership, differentiations, etc? • Then use SAFe to analyse which of the propositions should make it to Task 4.
