The Special Note: How can you avoid zero marks status?
Dear Students!
You are encouraged to consult both online and offline sources with objective to enhance your
understanding of the topic of the assignment. But consulting the sources does not mean that you start
copy-paste the material from sources. If you do so you will certainly lose marks or your assignment
will be graded zero on account of copying from a source. The workable strategy is to consult the
source, enhance your knowledge and write in your own words. A special instruction regarding how to
attempt the assignment is given in the announcement because it has been observed that many site and
blogs are promoting the culture of cheating and copy/paste among the students and adversely
damaging the grades and career of VU students. You all are requested not to copy or read such substandard
answer that not only kills the creativity but also sabotage the career as well.
Best of luck!

How do I construct a SPACE matrix?
The SPACE matrix is constructed by plotting calculated values for the competitive advantage (CA) and industry strength (IS) dimensions on the X axis. The Y axis is based on the environmental stability (ES) and financial strength (FS) dimensions. The SPACE matrix can be created using the following seven steps:

Step 1: Choose a set of variables to be used to gauge the competitive advantage (CA), industry strength (IS), environmental stability (ES), and financial strength (FS).

Step 2: Rate individual factors using rating system specific to each dimension. Rate competitive advantage (CA) and environmental stability (ES) using rating scale from -6 (worst) to -1 (best). Rate industry strength (IS) and financial strength (FS) using rating scale from +1 (worst) to +6 (best).

Step 3: Find the average scores for competitive advantage (CA), industry strength (IS), environmental stability (ES), and financial strength (FS).

Step 4: Plot values from step 3 for each dimension on the SPACE matrix on the appropriate axis.

Step 5: Add the average score for the competitive advantage (CA) and industry strength (IS) dimensions. This will be your final point on axis X on the SPACE matrix.

Step 6: Add the average score for the SPACE matrix environmental stability (ES) and financial strength (FS) dimensions to find your final point on the axis Y.

Step 7: Find intersection of your X and Y points. Draw a line from the center of the SPACE matrix to your point. This line reveals the type of strategy the company should pursue.
