Corporations adopt a segmentation depends on the existence of target variables, in general. In this paper, for the case of no target variables, a strategy through segmentation is proposed for corporations having a special status based on the management index. In case of segmentation using cluster analysis, however, if one classify according to many variables then he will be in face of difficulties in characterizing. Therefore, after extracting representative factors by factor analysis, a segmentation method through 2 step cluster analysis is employed on the basis of these representative factors. As a result, six segmentation groups are found and the resulting strategy is proposed which strengthens prominent factors and makes up defective factors for each group.
