Which is the "Right" Strategy -ANSOFFs Growth Strategies: Active Learning

Whole lesson as a combined adaptation on other ideas out there.. probably could get 2 (x 1hr) lessons out of this Way of deriving Ansoff's strategy from a scenario Lots of recent strategy stories..can be used for plotting/discussion then explanation of the model and an activity that helps question the idea of risk...traditionally but even in strategies the level of risk differ according to the context/situation .. so it depends on factors.. Another cut out Kineasthetic activity which helps with this... & is better than the stories as saves time and gets them moving things around the matrix..
