Description:

This paper discusses the economic and political impact of large companies. It specifically analyzes the companies, Loblaw Companies Limited and General Motors Defense. In particular, the paper looks at how John A. Lederer, President of Loblaw Companies Limited and Bill
Pettipas, Executive Director of General Motors Defense, were both faced with the challenge of how to deal with these companies and their economic and political impact.

From the Paper:

"In each case, a larger entity is a potential deterrent to the operation and successful strategy of the company. For Loblaw Companies Limited, it is Wal-Mart; for General Motors Defense it is the political lobbying of General Dynamics and United Defense. The way in which each of them meet their larger competitors and interact with them without being swallowed up creates another potential level of growth that they may have not achieved without this threat or challenge. To do this they may have to adapt technologies of the other; Loblaw might well negotiate with Wal-Mart to study its centralized information system, while GMD might have to expand its ability to lobby independently. Both case studies reveal that the contexts of each company are more and more part of the global system that is operant in our world; to participate within it and not be merged forcibly into it is the test and validation of a healthy organization and effective strategy."
