  • 7. Industry Architectural Shift Once the forces affecting competition in an industry and their underlying causes have been diagnosed, the firm is in a position to identify its strengths and weaknesses relative to the industry. It involves a number of possible approaches such as:  Positioning the firm so that its capabilities provide the best defense against the existing array of competitive forces.  Influencing the balance of forces through strategic moves, thereby improving the firm’s relative position.  Anticipating shifts in the factors underlying the forces and responding to them, hopefully exploiting change by choosing a strategy appropriate to the new competitive balance before rivals recognize it. Porter Prize | Industry Architectural Shift
  • 8. Creating Distinctive Value The value proposition is the element of strategy that looks outward at customers, at the demand side of the business. The value chain focuses internally on operations. The value proposition answers three questions:  Which customers?: Within an industry, there are distinct groups of customers, or customer segments. A value proposition can be aimed specifically at finding a unique way to serve the chosen segment profitably. It focuses on end users and the channels.  Which needs?: It appeal to a mix of customers who might defy traditional demographic segmentation. It focuses on products & services and the related features.  What relative price?: The companies have two value proposition: deliver higher value at a premium price or offer a low relative price according to their efficiency. Porter Prize | Creating Distinctive Value
  • 9. Fit locks out imitators by creating a chain that is as its strongest link. It creates competitive advantage as well as superior profitability. Types of Fit:  First-order fit: Basic consistency, where each activity is aligned with the company’s value proposition and each contributes incrementally to its dominant themes.  Second-order fit: It occurs when activities complement or reinforce each other. There lies a synergy, where the value of each activity is raised by the other.  Third-order fit: When fit goes beyond the activity of reinforcement then optimization of efforts occur wherein performing one activity makes it possible to eliminate another. Fit Porter Prize | Leveraging Unique Activities
  • 10. Trade-offs Trade-offs are essential to strategy. They create the need for choice and protect against repositioners and straddlers. It purposefully limit what a company offers. Trade-offs arise for three reasons.  Inconsistencies in image or reputation: A company known for delivering one kind of value may lack credibility and confuse customers if it delivers another kind of value or attempts to deliver two inconsistent things at the same time.  Arising from activities themselves: The configuration of activities that best delivers one kind of value cannot equally well deliver another. In general, value is destroyed if an activity is overdesigned or underdesigned for its use.  Limits on internal coordination and control: Senior management makes organizational priorities clear by deciding to compete in one way and not another. Porter Prize | Trade-offs
  • 11. Creating Shared Value The central premise behind creating shared value is that the competitiveness of a company and the health of the communities around it are mutually dependent and they has the power to unleash the next wave of global growth and to refine capitalism. It can be created in three ways.  Reconceiving products and markets: Companies can meet social needs while better serving existing markets, accessing new ones, or lowering costs through innovation.  Redefining productivity in the value chain : Companies can improve the quality, quantity, cost and reliability of inputs and distribution while they simultaneously act as a steward for vital natural resources and drive economic & social development.  Enabling local cluster development: Companies do not operate in isolation and in order to compete and thrive they need reliable local suppliers, infrastructure, talent pool etc. Porter Prize | Creating Shared Value
  • 12. Creating Value Based Healthcare Delivery Redefining Healthcare provides an overall framework for diagnosing and solving the immense problem, with detailed action steps in the heath care system. The concept of value refers to the output achieved relative to the cost incurred. Principles of Value-Based Competition that will help to achieve the alignment of all components of healthcare are  The focus should be on value for patients, not just lowering costs.  Free flow of information that is, information on results and process needed for value-based competition must be widely available.  Innovation in healthcare  There must be unrestricted competition based on results and should not be confined to the local realm instead should be regional and national.
