    • 1. Competitive Strategy By Michael Porter Instructor: Wesley Shu
    • 2. Competitive Strategy <ul><li>A framework for understanding the underlying forces of competition in industries </li></ul>
    • 3. Basic Competitive Forces
    • 4. The Five Forces <ul><li>Threat of entry </li></ul><ul><li>Intensity of rivalry among existing competitors </li></ul><ul><li>Pressure from substitute products </li></ul><ul><li>Bargaining power of buyers </li></ul><ul><li>Bargaining power of suppliers </li></ul><ul><li>They Are Structural Determinants of the Intensity of Competition </li></ul>
    • 5. Threat of Entry <ul><li>Barriers to entry </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Economies of Scale </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product differentiation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Capital requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Switching costs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>next </li></ul></ul>
    • 6. Economies of Scale <ul><li>can be also achieved by “joint costs” including brand name or know-how </li></ul><ul><li>Not only manufacturing, but also Marketing, service network (Amazon) R&D, branding, marketing etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Ex. McDonald share promotion among franchised stores </li></ul><ul><li>return </li></ul>
    • 7. Product Differentiation <ul><li>Differentiated products enjoy customer loyalty and brand identification </li></ul><ul><li>return </li></ul>
    • 8. Capital Requirement <ul><li>既存廠商可以創新價格模式﹐使得資本比重相對提高﹑回收期加長﹐例如租賃影印機 </li></ul>
    • 9. Switching Cost <ul><li>指買方不容易另求賣方﹐尤其是下游廠商對上游的依賴度。例如﹐公司一旦採用了某種 ERP 產品﹐要更換就不容易了﹐因為 ERP 除了價格不菲之外﹐一旦更換﹐訓練成本得重新付出﹐過去的維護成本完全付之流水。如此﹐新的 ERP 就不容易打入市場。 </li></ul>
    • 10. Other Barrier to Entry <ul><ul><li>Access to distribution channels </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost disadvantages independent of scale, e.g., proprietary product, favorable access to raw materials, favorable locations, government subsidies, learning or experience curve, government policy, etc. </li></ul></ul>
    • 11. Threat of Entry <ul><li>Expected retaliation </li></ul><ul><li>The entry deterring price </li></ul><ul><li>Properties of entry barriers, e.g., vertical integration to lower cost </li></ul><ul><li>Network externalities </li></ul>
    • 12. Expected retaliation <ul><li>History of vigorous retaliation </li></ul><ul><li>Established firms with substantial resources to fight back </li></ul><ul><li>Slow industry growth </li></ul><ul><li>return </li></ul>
    • 13. The entry deterring price <ul><li>競爭者想要進入某個產業﹐一定是覺得有利可圖。有利與否決定於競爭者對加入市場後的產品價格﹑自己的生產成本﹑以及為了進入該產業所需付出的努力。產業的既存者如果不想讓競爭者進入﹐可以將產品價格降低﹐低到競爭者覺得無利可圖。此時如果既存者為了爭取利潤而不降價﹐使得市場價格高於競爭者心目中的 Entry deterring price﹐ 就徒然讓他們蠢蠢欲動﹐和自己過不去了。 </li></ul>
    • 14. The entry deterring price <ul><li>在不成熟的第三世界國家﹐金融產業是被高度控制的。控制方法之一就是特許制度。任何特許﹑伴隨著法律上對政府的約束微弱﹐都無法避免貪污賄賂。而政府對不中意的行賄者﹐可以索取一定的回扣﹐使得該行賄者覺得無利可圖﹐就是操作 Entry deterring price 的一種方式。 </li></ul><ul><li>return </li></ul>
    • 15. Network externalities <ul><li>Network Externalities: 指的是﹐一件商品對消費者的價值決定於消費者的總數﹐而消費者購買的決定也取決於其總數。例如電話機﹑電腦操作系統﹑ eBay 都是。 </li></ul>
    • 16. Intensity of rivalry among existing competitors <ul><li>Numerous or equally balanced competitors </li></ul><ul><li>Slow industry growth </li></ul><ul><li>High fixed or storage costs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>High fixed cost: 為了沖銷大量的固定成本﹐廠商可能會傾向多生產﹐如此導致價格降低﹑廠商之間的競爭加劇。 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High storage cost: 為了出清存貨﹐降低儲存成本﹐廠商可能降價求售﹐如此增加了產業內的競爭。 </li></ul></ul>
    • 17. Intensity of rivalry among existing competitors <ul><li>Lack of differentiation or switching costs </li></ul><ul><li>Products are like commodity. </li></ul><ul><li>Capacity augmented in large increments </li></ul><ul><li>一旦如此﹐廠商會形成周期性的產量驟增。如果產品需求穩定﹐當產量驟增﹐供需就失衡﹐如此增加了產業內的競爭。 </li></ul><ul><li>High exit barriers: specialized assets, strategic interrelationship, emotional barriers, etc. </li></ul>
    • 18. Intensity of rivalry among existing competitors <ul><li>Diverse competitors </li></ul><ul><li>如此﹐各個廠商就無法正確了解對手的行為﹐形成混亂的戰局。此外﹐廠商也比較難提出普效的策略﹐因為對某一對手有效﹐對其他對手就未必。 </li></ul><ul><li>High strategic stakes </li></ul><ul><li>當廠商進入某一產業具有策略考量﹐ 通常表示他不太會放棄該產業﹑有意在該產業擴張﹑願意犧牲利潤以成就策略。這些再再增加了產業內的競爭。 </li></ul>
    • 19. Pressure from substitute products <ul><li>Price elasticity </li></ul><ul><ul><li>指價格的變動率對需求變動率的影響。價格的彈性愈高的話﹐價格上漲﹐需求就愈減少。亦即﹐消費者就愈傾向買替代品。讓價格彈性降低的方法很多﹐如運用 CRM 的技巧﹐增加消費者對品牌的認知和忠誠度﹑產品差異化。 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If the price elasticity is high, rising industry prices tend to drive consumers to purchase substitutes. </li></ul></ul>
    • 20. Bargaining power of buyers <ul><li>The buyer purchases large volumes. </li></ul><ul><li>The products are standard or undifferentiated. </li></ul><ul><li>It faces few switching costs </li></ul><ul><li>Buyers pose a credible threat of backward integration . E.g., GM or Ford’s self-manufacture as bargaining level for part suppliers </li></ul>
    • 21. Bargaining power of buyers <ul><li>The industry’s product is unimportant to the quality of the buyers’ products or services </li></ul><ul><li>The buyers have full information </li></ul>
    • 22. Bargaining power of suppliers <ul><li>Fewer and concentrated suppliers. </li></ul><ul><li>Suppliers are not obliged to contend with other substitute products </li></ul><ul><li>如果沒有競爭者生產替代品﹐該供應商自然就有較高的 bargaining power. </li></ul><ul><li>The industry is not an important customer of the suppliers </li></ul><ul><li>The suppliers’ product is an important input to the buyer’s business. </li></ul>
    • 23. Bargaining power of suppliers <ul><li>The supplier group’s products are differentiated or it has built up switching costs </li></ul><ul><li>The supplier group poses a credible threat of forward integration </li></ul>
    • 24. Competitive Strategy
    • 25. Competitive Strategy <ul><li>Identify the five forces and their causes </li></ul><ul><li>Identify a firm’s strengths and weaknesses relative to the industry </li></ul><ul><li>Create a defendable position against the five competitive forces </li></ul>
    • 26. Competitive Strategy Approaches <ul><li>Positioning </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Position the firm in the industry where the forces are weakest, or provide the best defense against the competitive forces. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Influencing the balance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Change the firm itself to eliminate the causes of the forces. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Exploiting change </li></ul><ul><ul><li>by choosing a strategy appropriate to the new competitive balance before rivals recognize it </li></ul></ul>
    • 27. Generic Competitive Strategies <ul><li>Cost leadership </li></ul><ul><li>Differentiation </li></ul><ul><li>Focus </li></ul>
