  26. 26. June 22, 2013 26Some Strategic Challenges to Managers:° Management has a distinctive and farsighted view,rather than a conventional and reactive view, aboutthe future.° Senior management focuses regenerating corestrategies rather than reengineering core processes.° Competitors view the company as a rule makerrather than a rule follower.° The company’s strength is on innovation andgrowth rather than on operational efficiency.° The company is mostly out in front rather thancatching up.
  27. 27. June 22, 2013 27Needs/Importance of Strategic ManagementDespite the involvement of high cost, strategicmanagement has the potential to:• Precipitate the concept of strategic choices,• Force a long-range view,• Make visible the resources allocation decision,• Aid strategic analysis and decision making,• Provide a strategic management and control system,• Provide both horizontal and vertical communicationand coordination systems, and• Help a business cope with changes.

  39. 39. June 22, 2013 39SCENARIO ANALYSISScenario Analysis can be divided into four elements:• Identify Scenarios• Develop Scenario Strategies• Estimate Scenario Probabilities• Perform Regret Analysis
  40. 40. June 22, 2013 401. Identify ScenariosIt is important to reduce the number of scenarios byidentifying a small set that ideally includes thosethat are plausible/credible and those that representdepartures from the present that are substantialenough to affect strategy development.2. Develop Scenario StrategiesAfter scenarios have been identified, the next step isto relate them to strategies – both existing strategiesand new options.
  41. 41. June 22, 2013 413. Estimate Scenario Probabilities¤ To evaluate alternative strategies it is useful todetermine the scenario probabilities.¤ Experts could be asked to assess probabilitiesdirectly.4. Perform Regret AnalysisThe final step is to compare the expected outcomesof each strategy if the wrong scenario emerges.
  42. 42. June 22, 2013 42Forecasting Environmental Trends and Events• Asking the Right Questions• Trend Extrapolation• Asking Experts• Decomposing the Task• Cross-Impact Analysis
  43. 43. June 22, 2013 43Strategic Uncertainty¤ Strategic Uncertainty may result from a typicalexternal analysis or sometimes the strategicuncertainty is represented by a future trend or eventthat has inherent unpredictability.¤ To deal with strategic uncertainty, impact analysisand scenario analysis can be employed.
  44. 44. June 22, 2013 44Impact Analysis¤ The extent to which a strategic uncertainty shouldbe monitored and analyzed depends on its impactand immediacy.¤ The impact of a strategic uncertainty is related to:* The extent to which it will impact existing orpotential SBUs (strategic business units)* The importance of the involved SBUs* The number of involved SBUs.
  45. 45. June 22, 2013 45Impact Analysis contd . . .• The immediacy of a strategic uncertainty is relatedto- The probability that the involved trends orevents will occur.- The time frame of the trends or events.- The reaction time likely to be available,compared with the time required to developand implement appropriate strategy
  46. 46. June 22, 2013 46Managing Strategic UncertaintiesIf both the immediacy and impact are low, then alow level of monitoring may be appropriate.If the impact is thought to be low but the immediacyis high, then monitoring and analysis may beappropriate.If the immediacy is low and the impact high, thenmonitoring and analysis in more depth andcontingent strategies may be considered.When both the immediacy and potential impact ofthe underlying trends and events are high, then anin-depth analysis will be appropriate, as will be thedevelopment of reaction plans or strategies.

  49. 49. June 22, 2013 49The Threat of Entry ...Dependent on barriers to entry such as:• Economies of scale• Capital requirements of entry• Access to distribution channels• Cost advantages independent of size (eg the“experience curve”)• Expected retaliation• Legislation or government action• Differentiation
  50. 50. June 22, 2013 50Buyer power is likely to be high when:• There is a concentration of buyers• There are many small operators in thesupplying industry• There are alternative sources of supply• Components or materials are a highpercentage of cost to the buyer leading to“shopping around”• Switching costs are low• There is a threat of backward integration
  51. 51. June 22, 2013 51Supplier power is high when:• There is a concentration of suppliers• Switching costs are high• The supplier brand is powerful• Integration forward by the supplier is possible• Customers are fragmented and bargainingpower low
  52. 52. June 22, 2013 52Threat of SubstitutesSubstitutes take different for:• Substitution of need• Generic substitution• Doing without
  53. 53. June 22, 2013 53Competitive rivalry is high when:• Entry is likely• Substitutes threaten• Buyers or suppliers exercise control• Competitors are in balance• There is slow market growth• Global customers increase competition• There are high fixed costs in an industry• Markets are undifferentiated• There are high exit barriers
  54. 54. June 22, 2013 54Five Forces Analysis: Key Questions and Implications• What are the key forces at work in the competitiveenvironment?• Are there underlying forces driving competitiveforces?• Will competitive forces change?• What are the strengths and weaknesses ofcompetitors in relation to the competitive forces?• Can competitive strategy influence competitiveforces (eg by building barriers to entry or reducingcompetitive rivalry)?

  65. 65. June 22, 2013 65Performance Measurement Beyond ProfitabilityIt is very important to develop performanceindicators that convincingly represent the long termprospect.Customer satisfaction/brand loyalty are the keysIt indicates how customers really feel about the firm.
  66. 66. June 22, 2013 66Guidelines for measuring satisfaction and loyalty problems and causes of dissatisfaction should beidentified exit interviews should be taken size and intensity of the customer group that truly likes abrand should be known. measures should be trackedPerformance Measurement Beyond Profitability
  67. 67. June 22, 2013 67Product and service quality how good a value it is? can it really deliver superior performance? how does it compare with competitor offerings? how will it compare with competitor offerings in the futuregive competitive innovations?Performance Measurement Beyond Profitability
  68. 68. June 22, 2013 68performance measurement• brand/firm associations what are its associations? what is the perceived quality?• relative cost• average costing in average costing some elements of fixed or semivariable costs are not carefully allocated butinstead are averaged over total production
  69. 69. June 22, 2013 69performance measurement• new product activity• manager/employee capability andperformance human factor is very important as they are theones who implement the strategies does the human resource support the current andfuture strategies? does new employees match the needs of theorganization?
  70. 70. June 22, 2013 70Generic Building Blocks of Competitive Advantage
  71. 71. June 22, 2013 71Generic Building Blocks of Competitive Advantage:EfficiencyEfficiency = Outputs/InputsFor many firms, EE productivity is key (output peremployee)Increased efficiency requires strategy, structure andcontrols (and a strong functional production oroperations program)Efficiency is “critical” for cost leaders (eg. Wal-Mart) but still very important for others
  72. 72. June 22, 2013 72Competitive Advantage: Customer Responsiveness• Superior Customer Responsiveness is a functionof:Quality, andInnovation in design, service, etc.• Often measured by:Response time, andAdaptability
  73. 73. June 22, 2013 73Competitive Advantages: Innovation• Perhaps the most important building block ofcompetitive advantage: may drive greater innovationleading to higher prices via differentiation or simplybetter processes leading to lower costs.• Companies can’t afford to sit still• Innovation includes advances in products,processes, management systems, organizationalstructure, strategies, etc
  74. 74. June 22, 2013 74Competitive Advantage: Quality• Quality drives profits in two ways:Increased reliability which leads to higher pricesdue to perceived higher qualityIncreased productivity due to lower re-work,returns and rejection rates leading to lower costs(zero defects)• Higher prices plus lower costs means more profits

  80. 80. June 22, 2013 80Strategic Resources: Two Types• Tangible– Land– Buildings– Plant– Equipment• Intangible– Brand names– Reputation– Patents– Technological ormarketing know-how
  81. 81. June 22, 2013 81Resources and CapabilitiesSkills in effectively coordinating and managingresources for productive use.– UniqueUnique resources and capabilities, or, at aminimum,– CommonCommon resources andunique capabilitiescapabilities– Best if have both.
  82. 82. June 22, 2013 82The Durability of Competitive Advantage• Barriers to imitation (Slows the speed of imitation bycompetitors in reducing advantage)– Imitation by acquiring similar resources– Imitation of capabilities (more difficult)• Limits on competitors– Prior strategic commitments– Absorptive capacity for change• Industry dynamism– The rapid innovationshortens product life cycles.
  83. 83. June 22, 2013 83Durability of Competitive Advantage• Durability is dependent upon:- height of barriers to imitation- capability of competitors to imitate innovation- general level of industry dynamism

June 22, 2013 96Comparative Collaborative Strategies In collaborative strategies, the firms withsimilar interests or having similar strengthswork together to consolidate their strengths soas to counter the threats or take benefits of theprevailing opportunities by the help ofcollective efforts. In most of such instances, the firms intend totake benefits of their comparative strengths.
  97. 97. June 22, 2013 97Directions for strategy developmentDirections for strategy developmentConsolidationConsolidation is a strategic direction in which a firm attempts toconsolidate its entire efforts and resources in one or twoofferings at a time so as to perform the best in the category.In market penetrationmarket penetration, the firm applies very low cost strategyand attempts to reach every corner of the marketplace so as tooccupy a comfortable market share, mostly in the case of newlaunch consumer goods and other convenience items.Product development follows a process of developing newproduct or making some changes in existing product afterexperiencing negative effect of product life cycle maturity, mostof the cases.
  98. 98. June 22, 2013 98Directions for strategy developmentDirections for strategy developmentMarket developmentMarket development strategy seeks exploringnew markets for existing product offerings byconverting the non-users into users orexploring into completely new marketsegments.DiversificationDiversification refers to simply expansion, andexpansion may take place at product and/ormarket level.
  99. 99. June 22, 2013 99Methods of strategy developmentMethods of strategy developmentInternal developmentInternal development refers to internally strengthening the firmby means of research, innovation, new product developmentand strategy revisits.Mergers and acquisitionMergers and acquisition is another popular mode of strategicdevelopment whereby the firm gets itself strengthened eitherby getting merged with other firm/s, and acquiring other firmsinto self.Joint-ventureJoint-venture is another mode of strategic strengtheningwhereby an existing firm joins hands with national orinternational venture partners.In strategic alliancesstrategic alliances, the firms with similar interests andoperating specializations join hands together for somepurpose.
