Firm Level Strategies
 
03:02
Let’s take a look at firm-level strategies. Firm-level strategy addresses the question, “How should we compete against a particular firm?” Although Porter’s five industry forces indicate the overall level of competition in an industry, most companies do not compete directly with all the firms in their industry. Instead of competing with an entire industry, most firms compete directly with just a few companies within it. Direct competition is the rivalry between two companies offering similar products and services that acknowledge each other as rivals and take offensive and defensive positions as they act and react to each other’s strategic actions. Two factors determine the extent to which firms will be in direct competition with each other: market commonality and resource similarity. Market commonality is the degree to which two companies have overlapping products, services, or customers in multiple markets. The more markets in which there is product, service, or customer overlap, the more intense the direct competition between the two companies. Resource similarity is the extent to which a competitor has similar amounts and kinds of resources, that is, similar assets, capabilities, processes, information, and knowledge used to create and sustain an advantage over competitors. While corporate-level strategies help managers decide what business to be in, and industry-level strategies help them determine how to compete within an industry, firm-level strategies help managers determine when, where, and what strategic actions should be taken against a direct competitor. Firms in direct competition can make two basic strategic moves: attack and response. An attack is a competitive move designed to reduce a rival’s market share or profits. A response is a countermove, prompted by a rival’s attack, that is designed to defend or improve a company’s market share or profit. When deciding when, where, and what strategic actions to take against a direct competitor, managers should always consider the possibility of retaliation.

Strategy Development Simplified: What Is Strategy & How To Develop One?  ✓
 
53:59
In this month's episode, I teach you various layers of strategy and how to use strategy tools. What I’d like to do in about 45 minutes to an hour is to give you a sense of what strategy is, what tools we use to develop strategy, and then teach you how to apply these corporate level tools to our day to day lives through developing strategic thinking abilities. So if you take this mini-course, by the end of it, you’ll very clearly learn what strategy is and its various levels such corporate strategy, business strategy, and functional strategies. You will no longer confuse it with tasks or goals, then you will learn about Strategy Canvas with value curves. It’s a tool that will help you see the bigger picture, help you with the positioning of your offerings and hence develop strategies to become… unique. And while I am teaching you these, I’ll run so many case studies to make it crystal clear for you. Then finally, the second half of the video will be the most useful part to you. Because in reality, you are probably not the strategy manager or the CEO of a large multinational company, you are probably not Coca Cola’s Chairman, so what I did at the 2nd half of the video is to customize strategy development so it can be applicable to your day to day lives. You will learn how to develop a strategic thinking that will apply to your work, apply to your family life, your school, in simple terms; your life. You’ll be a smarter person, because you’ll be more strategic in your thinking, you’ll have more success because you’ll be able to identify more opportunities, you’ll fail less because you’ll be able to identify risks even before they become apparent. And I’ll try my best to do the impossible and cover everything under 1 hour and make it super easy to understand. I’ll try but let’s see if I’ll succeed. So, what is strategy; Strategy is a word that gets used a lot and often in a wrong context. Most people confuse it with goals. Essentially, strategy is a roadmap to how we are going to win. Where you are is your “as-is” state, and where you want to go is your “to-be” state. How you are going to bridge that gap is your strategy. So, if I was to teach strategy to my children I’d say, you wanna reach the finish line first. You may walk straight to the finish line at 5 kms per hour, Or you may extend your route, take more time as you have to travel more distance, but collect the speed boost on the way so you go faster at the end at around 20 km per hour. Collecting that speed boost to win would be your strategy. now let’s get back to the adult world, in business, we have 3 major layers of strategy; We have Corporate Strategy We have Business Strategy And we have Functional strategy So, let’s start with corporate strategy;

SWOT analysis in practice - Starbucks -------------------------------- Strategy analysis has two main branches – analysis of a firm’s external environment and analysis of a firm’s internal environment. SWOT is a famous framework that allows us to combine the two types of analysis. SWOT is sometimes referred to as internal-external analysis. The acronym SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. The first two, Strengths and Weaknesses, are related to a firm’s internal environment, while the last two, Opportunities and Threats, consider its external environment. Internal strengths and external opportunities are vertically paired as helpful elements, while internal weaknesses and external threats are paired as harmful elements. if we perform a company analysis, under strengths, we would expect to see its core competences, the areas where the business excels and has a competitive advantage over competitors. Weaknesses are areas that need improvement. Such vulnerabilities place a company at a disadvantage when competing against other firms. Opportunities can be seen as favorable factors existing in a company’s external environment, in the industry where it operates, and have the potential to improve its current results and competitive positioning. Threats arise in a company’s external environment and might harm its current business.

Winning Strategies For Business Sustainability
 
04:41
If you're interested in licensing this or any other Big Think clip for commercial or private use, contact our licensing partner Executive Interviews: https://www.executiveinterviews.biz/rightsholders/bigthink/ Chief Marketing and Knowledge Officer for Booz & Company Tom Stewart on the hidden risks and hidden opportunities associated with living in a carbon-constrained world. A few years ago, I was actually talking to a guy who is on the Board of five companies; which corporate government people might tell you were too many. And I asked him what issues he was hearing. This is about 2, 3 years ago. And he said, for the first time in my life I'm hearing really serious board-level conversations about sustainability and corporate social responsibility that are more than lip service, more than, oh we got to keep these NGOs from harassing us too much, that we're really engaged. Tom Stewart, Chief Marketing and Knowledge Officer of Booz & Company. There was a very interesting study that was done in 2003 by the World Resources Institute in conjunction with a Swiss, financial firm call Sustainable Asset Management, in which they took a look at the world's automobile companies and they plotted them on your classic 2x2 matrix as to how much risk they would face in a carbon-constrained world, and how much opportunity they would get from a carbon-constrained world. And what they found by looking at quality of management products in the pipeline so on and so forth, up in the upper right hand quadrant where you would find the least amount of risk and the greatest amount of opportunity, were Toyota, Nissan, Renault and I think Honda was just off, just on the edge of that upper right hand quadrant. Down to the lower left where you have the least opportunity in the greatest risk where I think BMW, Ford, General Motors and so on and so forth. That was 2003, it's now six years later. I think that the shareholders of those companies that were in the upper right hand quadrant are a lot happier than the shareholders, or maybe I should say now the bondholders, of those companies that where in the lower left hand quadrant. There is pretty good evidence that you can actually understand the long-run opportunities and the long-run risks, and that it's worthwhile for your company and for your investors to take action on that insight. I think part of it is driven by issues of globalization. Because suddenly when you're working in a number of markets, some of them are emerging, some of them are fully developed, the status and role of the corporation in society is different and the old models seem to require a much more board-level and proactive, if you'll forgive the jargon, approach from a company. The way I've seen it mostly play out is, and a most intensely play out right now, is in the area of climate change and carbon and what are we going to do to move to a low carbon economy or at least a carbon constrained economy. And there's a little framework that I like to think of using which is that which is use by John Holdren, who is formerly of Harvard and now an adviser to the Obama administration. When it comes to climate change, there are three things that are going to happen. There can be mitigation, trying to prevent it. There can be adaptation, or there can be suffering. And the more you mitigate, the less you have to adapt, and the more you can mitigate and adapt, the less you have to suffer, but there's going to be something along all three. Now, it's well above my pay grade to think about that on a global policy level, but you can also adapt that same little model to a company or to an organization. What can I do to mitigate my contribution to global warming, to mitigate my carbon footprint and so on and so forth? What can I do to adapt to a carbon-constrained world? And what can I do if I'm going to end up suffering from a carbon-constrained world, and how do I deal with that? It's with that framework that I think that CEOs and boards need to be looking at a series of very high-level questions that are much more than, should I take out the incandescent light bulbs and screw in the compact florescent light bulbs? But really are five enterprise wide board-level issues that will help them think about their role in a carbon-constrained world, how to mitigate, adapt and avoid suffering in it. And, by extension, this is actually some model I think that can apply to most of the sustainability issues that you'll see.

Business Studies - Organisation Structure: Business Exam Tips
 
03:50
Get Unlimited Access to GCSE Tutor Videos & Online Revision Here for £19.99: http://www.revisionapp.co.uk/product/online-gcse-revision. Businesses can be very complex organisations with many hundreds or thousands of people working in them in many different roles. In order to manage their resources effectively, businesses must have clear organisational structures in place. Organisational structures include the different relationships between people in an organisation. For example in some cases, an employer might want to have a very formal relationship between people in the organisation in others it might be more relaxed. This happens in every day life too. Think about any organisation you're a part of. Do you call the other people by their first names? Do you call them by their title? What about the other members themselves? Do they call each other 'Mrs D', 'Dr X' or 'Mr M' or do they refer to each other by their first names? How do they refer to the the person leading the organisation? Different levels in a business are referred to as hierarchies. A hierarchy occurs where people are given some sort of title or rank that signifies their importance in the organisation. All businesses have employees working at different levels of responsibility. At the bottom, a business depends on its operatives to produce the products or services. Team leaders often perform the day-to-day management role, with operational managers setting direction and strategy for the business as a whole. The number of employees in each level will depend on the business' organisational structure. It is important to determine who takes responsibility for decision making, who reports to who and who to blame when things mess up (or who gets the pat on the back if things go well!) There are three typical organisational structures. They are known as hierarchical, flat and matrix. A hierarchical structure is typical in large companies where each level of employee reports upwards and each level has a narrow span of control. The downside of this type of structure is that it can often lead to significantly slower communication and decision making. A flat organisational structure has much less levels of hierarchy and wider spans of control. This means employees at each level can communicate with managers more easily and quickly. However, this usually means that workers take more responsibility for decision-making. The benefits of this are that it may encourage a more dedicated and motivated workforce. Typically this type of structure is used in small businesses and start-ups. A benefit of this structure is that it allows the business to change rapidly to respond to the market, customers or competitors. However, this only applies if the staff are well trained and are actually capable of making the changes. Lastly, a matrix structure gathers employees who hold the relevant expertise in order to help the business to meet its goals. The people selected come from different levels and departments within the business. The structure can be used in both hierarchical and flat organisations and are typically used for specific projects. Individual team members may come from different parts of the business, regardless of their usual location in the hierarchy. Obviously once a project is over the matrix will be disbanded.

This is a very complicated world. It’s a very noisy world. And we’re not going to get a chance to get people to remember much about us. No company is! And so, we have to be really clear on what we want them to know about us. Now Apple, fortunately, is one of half-a-dozen best brands in the whole world. Right up there with Nike, Disney, Coke, Sony — it is one of the greats of the greats. Not just in this country, but all around the globe. But even a great brand needs investment and caring if it’s going to retain its relevance and vitality. And the Apple brand has clearly suffered from neglect in this area in the last few years. And we need to bring it back! The way to do that is NOT to talk about speeds and fees. It’s NOT to talk about bits and mega-hertz. It’s NOT to talk about why we are better than Windows. The dairy industry tried for 20 years to convince you that milk was good for you. It’s a lie, but they tried anyway. And the sales were falling. And then they tried “Got milk” and the sales went up. “Got milk” wasn’t even talking about the product. In fact, it focuses on the absence of the product. But the best example of all, and one of the greatest jobs of marketing that the universe has ever seen, is Nike. Remember, Nike sells a commodity. They sell shoes!!! And yet, when you think of Nike you feel something different than a shoe company. In their ads, as you know, they don’t ever talk about the product. They don’t ever tell you about their air soles and why they are better than Reebok’s air soles. What does Nike do in their advertising? They honor great athletes. And they honor great athletics. That’s who they are, that’s what they are about! Apple spends a fortune on advertising — you’d never know it….you’d never know it! So…when I got here, Apple just fired their agency and there was a competition with 23 agencies that…you know…four years from now we would pick one. And we blew that up and we hired Chiat\Day, the ad agency that I was fortunate enough to work with years ago and created some award winning work including the commercial voted the best ad ever made, 1984 (by Advertising Professionals). And…we started working about eight weeks ago, and the question we asked was, “Our customers want to know who is Apple and what is it that we stand for…where do we fit in this world?” And what we’re about isn’t making boxes for people to get their jobs done — although we do that well. We do that better than almost anybody, in some cases. But Apple is about something more than that! Apple at the core…its core value — is that, we believe that people with passion can change the world for the better. That’s what we believe! And we have had the opportunity to work with people like that. We’ve had the opportunity to work with people like you; with software developers, with customers, who have done it. In some big, and some small ways. And we believe that, in this world, people can change it for the better. And that those people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones that actually do! And so, what we’re going to do in our first brand marketing campaign in several years, is to get back to that core value! A lot of things have changed. The market is in a total different place than where it was a decade ago. And Apple is totally different — and Apple’s place in it is totally different. And believe me, the products, and the distribution strategy, and the manufacturing are totally different…and we understand that. But values and core values — those things shouldn’t change. The things that Apple believed in at its core, are the same things Apple really stands for today.

What is Competitive Advantage?
 
07:58
ZACH DE GREGORIO, CPA www.WolvesAndFinance.com When you talk about business strategy, people talk a lot about competitive advantage. I feel this is a buzzword that people say a lot, but I wanted to dive deep into this idea and discuss what competitive advantage really means. This is an important concept to understand if you are making business decisions or understanding financial statements. Competitive Advantage is an attribute that allows you to outperform competitors. What I want to emphasize is the financial element of competitive advantage. The whole point of studying this, is it shows up in your financial statements as profit. The goal here is to focus on the attributes in your business that enable you to earn a higher profit than your competition. For example, imagine two companies that sell a similar type of product. Company A sells that product for $2, and company B sells that product for $1. Both companies can make that product for $0.50. So company A is making much more profit. Our job is to figure out, “what is the competitive advantage of company A versus company B?” Let us imagine the reason is that company A has a perception in the market for higher quality. We have all experienced situations like this. We might go into a store to purchase an item, and you see a line of similar items on a shelf. If one of those items has a reputation for better quality, you are going to be willing to pay a higher price for that item. In this example, quality is the competitive advantage. What is so interesting about studying competitive advantage, is that there are so many different options. It can be almost anything that gives your business an edge. There are many of these, but I am going to list out just a few. • Low cost leader • High quality • First mover status • Unique technology • Customer loyalty • Economies of scale • Vertical integration • Government regulation All of these are different reasons you might have a competitive advantage. I could talk for ages on each one of these, but I want to focus on the reason competitive advantage is so important. Whatever situation your business is in, if you have the awareness of your competitive advantage, it makes your business decisions so much easier. Every business out there only has so many resources. If you can take your resources and focus them on the area your business adds the most value to the market, you will make more profit. That is the basics… but we are going to take this to another level. When you study business strategy, what you quickly realize is that competitive advantage is not enough. What you really want to achieve is “sustainable competitive advantage.” You want your profit to last for years. A term you will hear people say is “economic moat.” You can imagine your business is a castle in the Middle Ages. One of the defenses of castles was a moat that was full of water. Your business is just like a castle, where you have competitors who are trying to take over your market position. The larger your economic moat, the harder it will be for someone to impact your company profits.

I speak at conferences with CPA Managing Partners and have a chance to interact with them. As I listen to CPA leaders, I hear common themes. Most of these firms want to experience double digit growth year after year. They want to acquire great new clients, attract and retain top talent and build a business of inherent net worth. Many CPA senior partners are looking at retirement and hoping their business will be of strong transferable value. I believe the mid-size CPA firm has never had a better opportunity to grow than now. But the strategies and tactics you’ve used in the past probably won’t work today or in the future. If you want to grow your CPA firm, here are five strategies that really work. https://www.theshattuckgroup.com/blog/detail/five-strategies-to-grow-your-cpa-firm

Porter's Five Forces - A Practical Example
 
07:46
According to Porter's five forces framework the competitive environment in an industry is influenced by five forces: • The Threat of new entrants; • The Threat of substitute products; • The Rivalry among existing firms; • The Bargaining power of buyers; • And the Bargaining power of suppliers. The five forces model teaches us that competition has multiple dimensions. It is important how many direct competitors we have, but it is also important if clients can choose to use alternative products, or if new entrants are likely to enter the market and increase current levels of competition. In addition, we shouldn’t forget that clients and suppliers can have a very strong bargaining power, and dictate the terms if the companies in an industry are unable to do anything about it.

Growth Strategies for Law Firms
 
00:24
BOOK REVIEW GROWTH STRATEGIES FOR LAW FIRMS By Viv Williams ISBN: 978 1 78358 023 1 ARK GROUP www.ark-group.com HOW TO GROW YOUR LAW FIRM IN AUSTERITY CONDITIONS An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you run a law firm, particularly a medium-sized one going for growth, we believe you need this book. Sensible, practical and hard-hitting, it talks tough about the tough competition out there and is full of suggestions as to what you can do about it. Expert consultant and author Viv Williams, CEO of the 360 Legal Group, advises that firms aiming for growth should devise a workable strategy to survive and thrive. Just how you do this is clearly explained in this concise and convenient paperback volume produced in management report format by the estimable Ark Group. 'The legal landscape is changing,' observes the author, with the traditional partnership model perceived by many to be 'unfit for purpose in the current era' -- and probably doomed to disappear in favour of a more modern corporate governance approach. This report, therefore, aims to help law firms understand the different growth mechanisms available to them and also of course, to assist them in determining the most effective strategy. Certainly a wide spectrum of business issues is addressed in this compact volume. Note especially the chapter on 'the new competition' which ranges from the Co-operative Legal Services and Saga, to Knights and James Caan. As the author advises, knowing what the competition is doing is vital in fast-changing markets particularly in the areas of pricing, credit control and client care. Look after your clients and ultimately they will look after you... is the basic message. Other issues discussed include OFR -- outcomes-focused regulation, which means firms will be judged on outcomes within certain guidelines rather than rules; another opportunity for growth when viewed constructively. Then there's ABS -- Alternative Business Structures -- a predictable consequence of the Legal Services Act 2007. ABS like OFR, is not only here to stay, but to the agile and alert, it presents further opportunities for new business and new growth. Legal business in this second decade of the twenty-first century faces much the same level of challenge as any business: namely the problems of austerity, including the competitive climate that goes with economic downturn and where access to working capital is becoming -- or indeed has become -- a major issue. Williams therefore presents a compelling and convincing case that success for law firms is achievable with the right business model -- and that even in tough times, yes -- there are lots of opportunities out there. Here then, is high-level consultancy at your fingertips in readable and accessible form -- and actually a bit of a bargain in terms of the value of the insights and advice given. Whatever the size of your firm, we believe you'll find it a useful addition to your professional library.

The key is to think about growth that is within your control, as all organizations are resource-constrained. You need to prioritize the type of growth that you're going to focus on. Generally, the more focused you are particularly when your small business or a startup the better off you will be. what types of growth strategy can you choose? Growing your existing market as a business growth strategy. The best growth strategy is simply serve your existing clients better. This might be producing more content and making you were product more easily accessible, or specifically solving the needs of your existing customers. Try to figure out how to reduce the problems that your customers have, and continue to reduce these problems. Your customers will be your salespeople when you do this business growth strategy. Market expansion and product diversification as a growth strategy. Once you figured out how to serve your customers to the best of your ability, try to remove yourself from the equation as much as possible. Set up organizational processes and try to find people that can serve your functions. Once you do that, you can start pursuing other markets that are closely related to what you are doing. The goal is to find possible ways to serve your existing customers and to identify new customers when you do this business growth strategy. You can also lower your prices or try to segment your existing customers and better serve these existing customers. Mergers and acquisitions as a growth strategy. The previous growth strategies were mostly organic. you can also grow by acquiring other companies. You can be relatively small and still merge and acquire other companies. The goal is to pick companies that better serve your existing customers and grow your customer base. You also should look for customers that match your existing business in terms of their management style and strategy.
