Attached assignment brief and below is the expansion.
Attached a sample assignment (follow very closely, especially how the Value Chain/ VRIN was done) on Air Asia.

WORD COUNT WILL NOT BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION.
-Nature of business

300 WORDS. talk about the "HOW?" Present with data, e.g. financial performance or employee satisfaction rating.
-An academic definition of success
-How to measure the success of the company (use Balanced Scorecard)
3. An outline of 6 to10 business reasons behind the success stated in a simple, straightforward way with a brief (4/5 sentences) explanation of each reason. Avoid strategy “jargon”; no analysis is required – this is a test of your broad business knowledge and understanding.
300 WORDS. talk about the "WHY?"
-What are the critical success factors?
Please give at least 8-9 reasons, 2 to 3 sentences for each reason.
