Key topics to be addressed in the strategic plan therefore include the following:

1.    Market positioning

  • Evaluate the market positioning of the hotel, including the hotel’s image and market share
  • Discuss the hotel’s strategy to develop competitive advantage and evaluate why this has, or has not, been successful

2.    Evaluation of weekly performance

  • Discuss how you responded to the Outlook (e.g., decisions made, the outcome of these decisions, the impact of various operations on other parts of the hotel, etc.)
