  Firms need a better way of planning

  Nick Field, in his book Strategy Management, offers a new approach to help companies map out their future.

  Many companies have lost the art of strategy-making. They spend too much time looking at process change, organisation and systems. (0)______. They have got things out of balance. In many companies, the development of strategy is in crisis. In a recent magazine poll, only six per cent of executives rated their company highly for long-term planning skills. (8) ______. If this figure is accurate, it is not surprising that 29% of the FTSE 100 companies failed to achieve real sales growth between 1992 and 1996, when take-overs are excluded from the figures.

  (8)评析:前句谈到:杂志调查显示,只有6%的总裁对他们公司的长期规划评价很高。

  可见,这部分信息的重心是planning,和strategy。后句说,如果这个数字是准确的话,那么。。。可见(8)中必然要包含关于数据的内容。正确答案为C. Another survey estimated that only one in ten companies had the information they needed to make strategic decisions. C中含有数字only one in ten,而且话题和前句一致,都是关于strategy.

  There can be no doubt about the value of effective strategy-making. Recent research has shown that what are described as 'visionary' companies - those with clear strategies for the future - deliver higher shareholder returns. They are less at risk from short-term earnings pressures because they know - and they can convince others - that they will survive these.

  (9) ______ Times have changed. The big company of today is not being defeated by another big company but by the small companies. So how do they do it?. And where do companies that are failing in this respect turn? If a company accepts that their strategy development is not 'the best in the class', if they acknowledge that they need to do more to map out their future, influence rather than be influenced, shape their market instead of being shaped by it, how should they take on this strategy-making challenge?

  (9)评析: 后一句谈到“时代已经变了,大公司不是被大公司,而是被小公司击败。”既然后句谈时代改变了,那么前句应当在谈过去怎样。正确答案为 F. In the past, it was generally believed that the scale of the company was the most significant factor.

  Field's book Strategy Management puts forward a new approach to help companies rediscover the power of forward planning. (10) ______. The book is straightforward to understand and use, and offers practical and specific directions. Research and empirical testing have proved that it can be useful in all areas of industry and should be of value to any company.

  (10)评析:前句谈到Field的书《战略管理》提到一种新的重新帮助公司发现未来规划的能力。后一句也谈到书,可见(10)句中一定包含关于书的信息。正确答案为A Clear guidelines are given on how to become involved with customers and build new forms of competitive advantage.

  The approach put forward is based on two key building blocks, the first being that any company considering its future must have a commitment to win. (11) ______. The second building block is competitive advantage. The author defines four prime areas that differentiate organisations and influence purchase decisions. These are 'the performance of the product or service, sold at the most attractive price, with extraordinary levels of service and strong emotional values.' It may require only one of these areas to produce a competitive advantage. Take Coca-Cola for example. (12) ______.

  (11)评析:前句提到two key building blocks的第一个,后句提到第二个,可见(11)的信息应当和第一个building block有关。前句中:the first being that any company considering its future must have a commitment to win. 这里重心落在commitment to win上。正确答案为E If this comes across forcefully enough rivals will see it and go elsewhere, believing the market will be taken over by another. 这里的this 指的即为commitment to win。

  (12)评析:前句提到可口可乐,后面一定在举可口可乐的例子。正确答案选

  B Through the brand name, the company has established a relationship with customers' feelings that has made the product highly successful.
