Easy and short notes of strategic management for CA IPCC Students for the upcoming exams. The notes only consist of 8 pages and are meant for quick revision.

Mainly students fail in ITSM Paper because they find it different and difficult from the CA Course specially the IT Part. In IT ICAI asks for technical language but for SM paper you can write answer in your own language in simple words. So do SM Properly.
