The report provides key insights into the overarching Strategic Positioning and degree of Environmental Responsiveness of General Dynamics Corporation through a Strategic Factor Analysis Summary (SFAS) framework analysis; also referred to as Quantitative SWOT Analysis, against the backdrop of an evolving industry landscape & shifting global dynamics against the backdrop of an evolving industry landscape & shifting global dynamics with Global Defense spending witnessing a surge driven by a deterioration of traditional world order with the resurgence of Russia, growing threat from terrorism & extremism, ongoing conflict in the Middle East and alteration of regional dynamics in the Asia-Pacific region with rapid military build-up by China & continued nuclear antics by North Korea which have collectively been driving defense spending across most key nations in the region with the upward growth trend likely to be sustained over medium term. Replacement of old, ageing cold war legacy hardware is going to drive growth avenues across traditional markets, led by, North America and Europe while acquisition of new hardware & systems aimed at strengthening & expansion of capabilities will be the key to growth across emerging markets based in the Middle East & APAC regions, led by Saudi Arabia & India respectively. The trend translates into significant growth opportunities for leading industry OEMs over medium term with a number of key, big ticket defense programs already initiated or under consideration across most markets globally.

The report provides an overall SFAS score on General Dynamics Corporation based on an analysis of the company’s strategic positioning in the current as well as projected market dynamics and its degree of responsiveness to its internal & external environment respectively with the objective of assessing as to how favorably is the company positioned (with its portfolio, underlying strategy & state of operations etc.) and how responsive it is to the nature & pace of changes taking place within its internal and external environment respectively. The framework generates an insightful snapshot of the prevailing, overall strategic equation for the company by identifying, weighing, prioritizing & ranking significant strategic factors present in the internal & external environment through an Internal Factor Analysis Summary (IFAS) matrix & External Factor Analysis Summary (EFAS) matrix respectively based on the strategic significance & potential degree of impact of factors along-with each respective company’s corresponding degree of responsiveness to those factors. The final Strategic Factor Analysis Summary (SFAS) framework amalgamates the IFAS & EFAS matrices into a single matrix providing a holistic, overarching view.

The numeric SFAS score and the analysis produced by the framework, thus, is highly useful for competitive & comparative analysis from a current as well as emerging reality perspective with the framework assessing strategic positioning & the degree of responsiveness of the company towards the present as well as emerging market & industry dynamics, thereby, analyzing the ability to be able to create & capitalize on potential growth opportunities effectively by harnessing & navigating the changing market & technology landscape effectively while leveraging structural & core strengths and negating threats & overcoming challenges simultaneously.

SFAS, as a framework, thus, scores significantly over the traditional SWOT analysis framework, in terms, of its ability to quantify a range of strategic factors categorized into strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & threats respectively based on the nature & potential degree of effect of each strategic factor being analyzed, thereby, making it much more effective for competitive assessment & analysis and from a strategic planning standpoint with the creation of a quantitative strategic snapshot on the company/business being analyzed.
