Any economic system is considered to be "closed loop (feedback) [1] and therefore, its operation requires the existence of two factors, namely: a difference between desired value and actual value (current), called deviation, and a policy (strategy) that expresses the actions necessary to ensure a certain desired size for the difference between desired and actual value. Deviations analysis is controlling instrument company (as the enterprise process management), giving it the ability to timely notify the distractions and allowing adjustment of the system, increases shortterm responsiveness of the entrepreneur and gives long-term capacity greater adaptation (it is called "seismograph company). From this perspective it is considered that the strategic approach and diagnostic analysis prior to the decision making and the alternatives they provide, justify it scientifically. Key words: economic analysis, financial analysis, diagnostic JEL classification: B26, C81, D22, M51

Enterprise as a system and analysis implications One of the specific features of enterprise refers to the fact that enterprise is a self-adjusting system that is has the ability to be self regulated [2] by means of awareness of human factors, and incorporating in its structure a decision or control subsystem. Self regulation [3] is characterized by the capacity of systems to respond to internal or external disturbances action and keep composure over different periods of time. In general, programmed outputs from enterprise system are based on market demand and profitability objectives and predetermined efficiency. In practice results have always tended to turn to the objectives, because company must face in its business environment a set of socio-economic agents which, in turn, pursuing their own objectives. Of course, it tries to anticipate the decisions of these agents (often competitors) predictions translated into budgets in order to prevent situations which might lead to bankruptcy [4]. In these circumstances, it is necessary for enterprise system to be organized that manages to be self-regulating. For this the system includes a self regulation internal structure, with two major components: - Comparison - considers the deviations of actual output port with the programmed;

Diagnostic analysis is the management tool that helps enterprise management in understanding the past and present. in order to substantiate future strategic objectives of maintaining and developing the company in a competitive environment. such as knowledge management company seeking a better selection of information and knowledge within the firm. sociology and anthropology have made the conceptual foundations of current knowledge in this field.particularly psychology and sociology that were taken fundamental ideas and concepts. which must be exploited for competitive aims because now knowledge are sources of productivity growth and creative ideas and innovative thinking are essential to achieve success in a rapidly changing market [8] . is the point where start identifying opportunities. giving another dimension of market competition.banking interested in making cooperation with undertaking actions [6]. economic. even anticipating the future evolution of the environment so that enterprises can adapt to his new structure [5]. but also the dangers. experts estimate that political economy.

This type of behavior is framed in what experts call the strategic behavior. but lacks the ability to assert their own interests. based on these benchmarks will be reflected in the strategies may be adopted: 1. The easiest solution in this situation is to detect abandonment opportunities for competitors. Strategy S/O (strengths/opportunities) is the most advantageous positions of the wheels on the grid for analysis and is as consistent use of potential internal strengths and exploit opportunities for environmental detection.
