1. Introduction Strategic management is the art and science of formulating, implementing, and evaluating processes that enable an organization to achieve its objectives. At the heart of strategic management lies the integration of management, marketing, finance, production operations, research and development with the aim of leading the organization to success. To enact a successful strategy, all these company activities must fit and complement each other in order to deliver value both to the firm and its customers. “For the leading strategy guru, Michael Porter (1996), strategy is about achieving competitive advantage through being different– delivering a unique value added to the customer, having a clear and enactable view of how to position yourself uniquely in your industry". In the present paper we have chosen company Abonet for the practical reason of emphasizing the main features of the strategic management implementation process. 2.
