  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Marketing cannot be accomplished in isolation. Even though the marketing function resides with marketers, the concept of marketing must permeate the entire organization.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Strategic planning creates and maintains a fit between the organization’s resources and objectives and the evolving market opportunities. The goal is to sustain and increase long-run profitability and growth. Strategic decisions require long-term commitments of resources. Strategic errors can threaten a firm’s survival, but a good plan can help protect and grow the firm. Examples of strategic decisions: * Sears purchase of Lands’ End * Reebok’s decision to stop competing with Nike in the hard-core sports market and instead focus on being the top shoe brand for fashion-forward consumers. * McDonald’s decision to offer more healthful foods * S.C. Johnson’s introduction of Shout Color Catchers Discussion/Team Activity: Discuss strategic planning decisions of other companies. Discuss why strategic planning is important for these companies.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: How do companies go about strategic marketing planning? How do employees know how to implement the long-term goals of the firm? The answer is a marketing plan.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Writing a marketing plan allows the examination of the marketing environment in conjunction with the inner workings of the businesses. Once written it serves as a reference point for future activities, and allows the marketing manager to enter the marketplace with an awareness of problems and opportunities.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Some elements are common to all marketing plans. These include the business mission and objectives, performing a SWOT analysis, determining a target market, and establishing a marketing mix. Other elements that may be included are budgets, implementation timetables, required marketing research efforts, or elements of advanced strategic planning. Exhibit 2.1: Example of marketing plan sketch The Marketing Plan Appendix contains a Marketing Plan Outline.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Online Dmusic Use Exhibit 2.1 to create a sample summary marketing plan for Dmusic.com, an Internet start-up created by a teenage entrepreneur.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: The foundation of any marketing plan is the firm’s mission statement. The mission statement is based on an analysis of benefits sought by present and potential customers and an analysis of existing and anticipated environmental conditions. The mission statement establishes boundaries for all subsequent decisions, objectives, and strategies. Discussion/Team Activity: Find the mission statements for various organizations. Compare the mission statements with the markets served and the products sold by these organizations.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: The AMA’s mission statement is shown here.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: An organization may need to define a mission statement and objectives for a Strategic Business Unit (SBU), which is a subgroup of a single business or a collection of related businesses within the larger organization
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Performance of a situation (SWOT) analysis helps firms identify their competitive advantage. Strengths and Weaknesses are an internal assessment. Opportunities and Threats are an external environment assessment. Discussion/Team Activity: Perform a SWOT analysis for companies within the same industry. How could you use this information if you worked for a particular company or for a competitive company?
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage NOTES:
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Additional strengths include superiority in manufacturing, service, quality and value perception, as well as employee capabilities.

  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: A firm’s competitive advantage is the reason or reasons that cause customers to patronize that firm and not the competition.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Having a cost competitive advantage means being the low-cost competitor in an industry while maintaining satisfactory profit margins. This enables a firm to deliver superior customer value. Cost leadership can result from the reasons listed on this slide. Cost competitive advantages are subject to continual erosion. Discussion/Team Activity: Identify firms that have a cost competitive advantage and describe how they deliver superior value. Examples: DuPont Dell Computers Wal-Mart Corporation Southwest Airlines Nike General Electric
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Sources of Cost Reduction Experience Curves: Costs decline as experience with a product increases, and encompasses marketing, manufacturing, and administration costs. Efficient Labor: Labor costs in low-skill, labor-intensive industries can be reduced by going offshore or by outsourcing. No-frills Products: Removing frills and options can reduce costs. Government subsidies: Governments may provide grants and interest-free loans for target industries. Product design: Cutting-edge design and reverse engineering can offset costs. Reengineering: Reengineering in the form of pruning product lines, closing obsolete factories, or renegotiating supplier contracts can make firms more efficient. Product innovations: New technology and simplified production techniques can reduce production costs. New methods of service delivery: Examples include: * Outpatient surgery and walk-in clinics in the medical industry * Internet ticket booking and self-check-in kiosks in the airline industry
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Product/Service Differentiation tends to provide a longer lasting competitive advantage than does cost competitive advantage. As a result, this strategy is more attractive to many top managers. Discussion/Team Activity: Discuss companies that have a product/service differentiation for: Brand name: Lexus Strong dealer network: Caterpillar Tractor Product reliability: Maytag Image: Ritz Carlton Hotels Rolex BMW Neiman Marcus Johnson &amp; Johnson Service: FedEx Nordstrom Innovation: Nike
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: According to best-selling author and marketing guru Seth Godin, the elements listed here (see slide above) are key ways to build or maintain competitive advantage. These can also serve as interesting discussion starters. Not a competitive advantage in most settings? Cheerleading skills [&amp;quot;we are #1!&amp;quot; &amp;quot;we are better!&amp;quot; and &amp;quot;we try harder“…and even “we are new!”] Here’s what your shareholders will want to know: What&apos;s your competitive advantage? Is it really, or are you dreaming it up? How long will it last? Can your competition copy it? Does it resonate with the part of the market that is looking to buy? Is the advantage big enough to overcome the “switching” cost?
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Discussion/Team Activity: Discuss how a small firm serving a particular niche market can successfully compete against larger, global firms with greater resources. (For example, how might a small bookstore owner compete with Barnes &amp; Noble and Amazon.com?)
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: A sustainable competitive advantage lasts only as long as the time it takes a competitor to imitate the strategy and plans. Marketing managers should continually look for skills and assets that create and sustain competitive advantage. A sustainable competitive advantage is a function of the speed with which competitors can imitate a company’s strategy and plans. Imitation requires a competitor to identify the leader’s competitive advantage, determine how it is achieved, and learn how to duplicate it. Discussion/Team Activity: Discuss examples of firms that have sustainable competitive advantage in each skill and asset source listed.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Examples of Strategic Alternatives Market Penetration: Manufacturer cents-off coupons McDonald’s Happy Meals with Ty’s Teeny Beanie Babies Market Development: Expansion into global markets by companies such as McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Pepsi Product development: Brooks Brothers Joseph A. Bank Clothiers Diversification: LTV Corporation, a steel producer, diversified into the monorail business Coca-Cola’s water-treatment and water-conditioning equipment
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: The Portfolio Matrix from Boston Consulting Group classifies each SBU by its present or forecast growth and market share. The assumption is that market share and profitability are strongly linked. A star is a fast-growing market leader. Stars usually have large profits but need cash to finance growth. A marketing tactic is to protect market share by reinvesting earnings in product improvement, distribution, promotion, and production efficiency. Strive to capture new users as they enter the market. A cash cow generates more cash than it needs to maintain market share. It is in a low-growth market, but the product has dominant market share. The marketing strategy is to maintain market dominance by being the price leader and by making technological improvements. Allocate excess cash to high-growth prospects. A problem child shows rapid growth but poor profit margins. It has a low market share in a high-growth industry. It needs a great deal of cash to prevent conversion to dog status. Strategies are to invest to gain better market share, acquire competitors, or drop the SBU. A dog has low growth potential and a small market share. Most dogs leave the market. The strategy options are to divest or harvest.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Note: Build: If an SBU has the potential to be a star, building would be an appropriate goal. Hold: If an SBU is a successful cash cow, a goal would be to hold or preserve market share. Harvest: This is an appropriate strategy for all SBUs except stars. The basic goal is to increase short-term cash return without much concern for the long-run impact. Divest: Getting rid of SBUs with low shares of low-growth markets is often appropriate. Problem children and dogs are suitable for this strategy.

  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Three strategies for selecting target markets are shown here. These strategies are discussed in detail in Chapter 7. Discussion/Team Activity: 1. Discuss the differences in the target markets for McDonald’s, Burger King’s, and Wendy’s.

  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: The product is the starting point of the marketing mix. It is difficult to decide on a promotion campaign, determine a price, or design a distribution strategy until the product offering and product strategy are defined. The product is not only the physical unit but also the packaging, warranty, after-sale service, brand name, company image, value, and other factors. Products may be tangible goods, services, and ideas. Product decisions are discussed in Chapter 9 and 10, services marketing in Chapter 11.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: The goal of distribution is to ensure products arrive in usable condition at the right place when customers need them. Distribution is covered in Chapters 12 and 13.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Online Paramount Warner Brothers Universal Studios How do movie companies use their Web sites as part of their promotion strategies? Visit the sites for the movie studios listed to see what films they are promoting heavily. Also look at movie-specific sites. Are there differences how the movie-specific site promotes the film and how the studio’s umbrella site promotes the film? Explain what you find. Notes: Promotion includes personal selling, advertising, sales promotion, and public relations. Each element of the promotion mix is coordinated with the others to create a promotional blend. Integrated Marketing Communications is discussed in Chapters 14, 15, and 16. Technology-driven aspects of promotional marketing are covered in Chapter 19. A good promotion strategy can increase sales, but does not guarantee success.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Price is an important competitive weapon and is often the most flexible of the marketing mix. Of the four Ps, it can be changed most quickly. Price multiplied by the number of units sold equals total revenue for the firm. Pricing decisions are discussed in Chapters 17 and 18.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Since the “Eat Mor Chikin” campaign debuted in 1995, Chick-fil-A&apos;s brand awareness has grown 44 percent in its top markets and sales have more than quadrupled, from just over $500 million in 1995 to more than $2.64 billion in 2007. In that same year, the Chick-fil-A &amp;quot;Eat Mor Chikin&amp;quot; Cows were recognized as one of America&apos;s most popular advertising icons in a public vote sponsored by Advertising Week, becoming the newest members of New York&apos;s Madison Avenue Advertising Walk of Fame.
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Implementation is the process that turns marketing plans into action assignments. These activities may involve job assignments, activity descriptions, timelines, budgets, and lots of communication. Implementation is essentially “doing what you said you were going to do.” However, many organizations repeatedly experience failures in strategy implementation. The marketing audit provides the mechanisms for evaluating marketing results compared to the plan’s goals. Online Youngbiz.com Visit the YoungBiz Web site’s list of Top 100 entrepreneurs. Select one of the entrepreneurial ventures listed and create a marketing plan for it using the concepts and strategies discussed in this chapter. How would you implement, evaluate, and control the plan?
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage
  • Chapter 2 Strategic Planning for Competitive Advantage Notes: Strategic planning is not an annual event, but an ongoing process. The environment is continually changing, and the firm’s internal resources and capabilities are continually evolving. Strategic planning is based on creativity. Assumptions about the firm and the environment should be challenged and new strategies established to sustain competitive advantage. Management support and participation are critical to the success of strategic planning.
