It is considered to be a genuine strategy. • Cost leadership strategy: It involves the firm wining the price sensitive market share. It has the lowest price available for the consumer. It operates at a lower cost as compared to its rivals and yet achieves profitability. It is not a competitive strategy as the customer doesn’t perceive it, unless it leads to lower prices.
