Strategic tools we studied-
Mission and Vision Statement
Mission Statement- they have a mission to provide best lodging facilities to the customers and become number 1 in the hospitality industry.
They strive to provide the best quality in all the services they provide to their customers whether it be food, rooms, beverages, meetings, conferences and many such things, so that they will create a great customer base and successful in retaining these customers, and by these customers they will get various more customers.
Their vision is “To be the #1 hospitality companies in the world”
As is their mission statement we will see that they wanted to become best in the world by providing best quality in everything, so they are achieving this by providing this to their customers (Businessstrategyhub, 2020).
Strengths- these are the internal strengths which Marriott International have
They are global leader in hospitality sector
They have brand equity
They are always hand in hand with technology
They have great internet presence
They focus on brand differentiation
They have their mind set for the market they want to target on and working accordingly
Weakness- these are also internal in nature, they are the problem which are there inside the company.
As they are a established brand with big brand name there are various internal team factors which are their weakness.
They are only in the higher class of society.
They do not provide low cost hospitality services.
Now a day’s people wanted to go out but not want to spend a lot
Opportunity- they are external in nature which means they are regulated by outside forces-
There is a growth in the tourism industry in last some years and this will be the opportunity for Marriott to grab this
There are various tourists who wanted to live for a quite long time and want to spend less money on daily basis in staying, so they wanted a good place for long stays. So Marriott can enter into this with a small investment and provide great services t customers.
As in the whole world the term everyone is using is eco friendly, this is trending thing and they can take advantage of that.
They can make some hotels which are eco friendly and promote them with #ecofriendly which will gain interest of a huge public and lead to huge profits to them.
Threats- they are also external in nature which indicates that threats ar from the parties which are outside the business.
Due to some economic recession people are less traveling for leisure which is a great threat for them.
As they regulate in various countries political instability is also a big threat to them.
There are many tax related scams because of which Marriott international is losing their brand name and brand image.
PEST analysis is very important for a company to do time to time as it will provide us knowledge about the external factors which can impact a business in a great manner and it can be negative if not studied properly and timely.
Political Environment- as Marriott is a huge chain and they regulate in 131 countries, so it is very difficult to manage all the rules and regulations but Marriott International group is doing it very well. They properly understand the policies of each and every country and then work in that country, they are doing this in every work in past and in present also. Marriott is following each and every rule and protocol designed by every country like; no smoking policy, non-fat Food, low calorie diet etc.
Economic Environment- The growing economies and trends in various countries are encouraging Marriott to grow and invest more in these countries. As if the economic grows people want some time to leisure. They want everyone may be it a visitor who is there for leisure or work stay with them. On the edge of this they are moving towards the green energies in their working which lead to a positive responses from the government and increase in customers also and on the higher side they started decreasing cost of operations by that.
Social Environment- Everyone in this era have their own travel plans to make their travel diaries and memories which will remain lifelong with them and transportation played its part by providing better services day by day for the travelers who want to travel the world, so same to be applied for the hospitality industry, Marriott can take advantage of that and enter into the markets where the tourism is increasing like in America, Europe, Australia, etc.
Technological environment- Technology a word about which everyone have knowledge but it is very important for businesses to understand technology properly and implement the required technology in their company to grow in the market. Today everyone is using technology in even very small works and Marriott is an organization, which move hand in hand with technology and they take every advantage to take every benefit they can take due to technical advancement.
It is very necessary to formulate and implement strategic plan for a organization to achieve success.
