You must structure your report in the same order as the
assignment tasks set out below.
While the word count for the report is 3000 words (+ / 10%), the suggested word limits below are based on your

—————————————————————————–Lidl (https://www.lidl.com/) is a German global discount
supermarket chain operating across some 30 countries
globally. The company is looking to further expand
internationally.
Using Lidl as a case company, produce a report that
addresses the 5 following tasks:
2
TASK 1.
Evaluate the following 2 countries to identify which
represents the most potentially attractive target market for
Lidl’s future international expansion strategy:

Mexico

Norway
In order to evaluate which of these 2 countries represents
the most potentially attractive target market, you are
required to undertake a comparative PESTEL analysis of
those macro-environmental factors of the 2 countries that
are relevant to Lidl.
– Worth 20% of the overall mark
– Not included in the word count




This background analysis must be included as an
appendix, presented in table format and must be no
more than 5 pages in length.
Data should be recent, primarily quantitative and
obtained from appropriate sources (e.g. the most
recently published World Economic Forum’s Global
Competitiveness report).
A scoring system should be used for each macroenvironmental factor / sub-factor for each country to
show whether each factor / sub-factor is more or less
attractive for your company. These scores should
then be totalled for each country in order to arrive at
an overall scoring of attractiveness for each country.
Further guidance on undertaking the comparative
analysis of the 2 countries is available in the
Assignment Briefing slides on Blackboard.
TASK 2.
Discuss the rationale for the selection of your chosen
market. Your rationale should be justified with a more
detailed discussion of your PESTEL analysis of the macroenvironmental factors of your chosen market that you have
3
presented in the appendix for Task 1. This discussion
should explicitly consider the implications of the macroenvironmental factors of your chosen market for Lidl.
– Worth 20% of the overall mark; 825 words.

This task must be presented in the first section of the

TASK 3.
Apply the 5-Forces model to critically analyse the

your chosen market. A SWOT analysis is not acceptable.
– Worth 20% of the overall mark; 825 words.

This task must be presented in the second section of
the main body of your report.
TASK 4.
Analyse the firm’s internal environment in order to EITHER:

and the competitive implications of these for the company
when entering into your chosen market (this will require an
application of the VRIO framework)
OR:
ii) identify Lidl’s internal value-adding activities and critically
evaluate which of these will be most relevant in supporting
the company to enter into your chosen market (this will
require an application of the Value Chain model).
A SWOT analysis for either option is not acceptable.
– Worth 20% of the overall mark; 825 words.

This task must be presented in the third section of
the main body of your report.
