Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject Tourism - Hotel Management, University of Lincoln (Tourism), course: Strategic Management of Tourism, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: A key question in strategy research is why companies diverge in their conduct and profitability. Researchers have determined to view companies as autonomous entities, striving for competitive advantage from either external sources, or from internal resources and capabilities. (Gulati/Nohria/Zaheer (2000): 203)

Their size permits them to go in for global marketing and to substantially reduce the costs per visitor. The business formula is larger equal less expensive. This formula disregards the follow-up costs caused by growing traffic volumes, noise, accidents, landscape use, and environmental pollution. (Freyer (1998): 117)

Strategic management applies to managerial decisions that fuse the organization to its environment, guide internal activities, and concern organizational long-term performance. The strategy determines markets and products or services, it is about selecting where and how to compete, which organizational structure has to be established, how can employees be motivated, and how to allocate resources to create the greatest overall success. (Houlden (1996): 13; Stahl/Grigsby (1997): 21)
