Strategic planning l.jpg

Strategic Planning

  • Amazon uses strategic planning to get ready for a profitable and sustainable business future.

  • Strategic planning = the “managerial process of developing and maintaining a viable fit between the organization’s objectives, skills, and resources and its changing market opportunities.”

  • Two key elements of strategic planning are:

    • The preparation of a SWOT analysis,

    • The establishment of strategic objectives.

Swot analysis strengths weaknesses opportunities and threats l.jpg

SWOT AnalysisStrengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats

  • It examines:

    • The company’s internal strengths and weaknesses with respect to the environment,

    • The competition and looks at external opportunities and threats.

  • Opportunities may help to define a target market or identify new product opportunities, while threats are areas of exposure.

    The Amazon story


    Example7 l.jpg

    Example

    • A company’s strengths and weaknesses in the online world may be somewhat different from its strengths and weaknesses in the brick-and-mortar world.

    • Barnes & Noble has enormous strengths in the brick-and-mortar world but these do not necessarily translate into strengths in the online world:

    • Channel conflict = having to explain to channel partners why customers can purchase for less online than in the store.

    The Balanced Scorecard


    Strategic objectives l.jpg

    Strategic Objectives

    The firm sets objectives such as:

    • Growth. How much can the firm reasonably expect to grow in terms of revenues, and how fast?

    • Competitive position. How should the firm position itself against other firms in the industry? Viable positions are:

      • Industry leader (Microsoft),

      • Price leader (Priceline.com),

      • Quality leader (Mercedes),

      • Niche firm (Google.com),

      • Best customer service (Dell.com).


    Strategic objectives11 l.jpg

    Strategic Objectives

    • Geographic scope. Where should the firm serve its customers on the continuum of local to multinational?

    • Other objectives. Companies often set objectives for the number of industries they will enter, the range of products they will offer, the core competencies they will foster, and so on.

    Strategy l.jpg

    Strategy

    • It is the means to achieve a goal.

    • It is concerned with how the firm will achieve its objectives, not what its goals are:

      • The firm sets its growth and other objectives,

      • It decides which strategies it will use to accomplish them,

      • The tactics are detailed plans to implement the strategies.

  • It is important to note that objectives, strategies, and tactics can exist at many different levels in a firm.

    From strategy to electronic strategy l.jpg

    From Strategy to Electronic Strategy

    • E-business strategy:

    • The deployment of enterprise resources to capitalize on technologies for reaching specified objectives that ultimately improve performance and create sustainable competitive advantage.

    • Corporate-level business strategies including information technology components (Internet, digital data, databases, and so forth) become e-business strategies.

    • E-Business Strategy = Corporate Strategy

    • + Information Technology


    Slide16 l.jpg

    E-business strategy flows from the firm’s environmental analysis.


    From strategy to electronic strategy17 l.jpg

    From Strategy to Electronic Strategy

    Marketing strategy becomes e-marketing strategy when marketers use digital technology to implement the strategy:

    E-marketing strategy = marketing strategy

    + Information technology


    From strategy to electronic strategy18 l.jpg

    From Strategy to Electronic Strategy

    • Most strategic plans explain the rationale for the chosen objectives and strategies. There are four appropriate types of rationale:

      • Strategic justification shows how the strategy fits with the firm’s overall mission and business objectives,

      • Operational justification identifies and quantifies the specific process improvements that will result from the strategy,

      • Technical justification shows how the technology will fit and provide synergy with current information technology capabilities,

      • Financial justification examines cost/benefit analysis and uses standard measures (ROI, NPV).

    From business models to e business models l.jpg

    From Business Models to E-Business Models

    • Business model: a method by which the organization sustains itself in the long term, and includes its value proposition for partners and customers as well as its revenue streams.

    • A firm will select one or more business models as strategies to accomplish enterprise goals.


    How does a firm select the best business models l.jpg

    How does a firm select the best business models?

    • Critical components:

    • Customer value. Does the model create value through its product offerings that is differentiated in some way from that of competitors?

    • Scope. Which markets do the firm serve, and are they growing? Are these markets currently served by the firm, or will they be higher risk new markets?

    • Price. Are the firm’s products priced to appeal to markets and also achieve company share and profit objectives?


    How does a firm select the best business models22 l.jpg

    How does a firm select the best business models?

    • Revenue sources. Where is the money coming from? Is it plentiful enough to sustain growth and profit objectives over time?

    • Connected activities. What activities will the firm need to perform to create the value described in the model? Does the firm have these capabilities?

    • Implementation. The company must have the ability to actually make it happen.

    • Capabilities. Does the firm have the resources (financial, core competencies, and so on) to make the selected models work?

    • Sustainability. The e-business model is particularly appropriate if it will create a competitive advantage over time.

    • E-business model:method by which the organization sustains itself in the long term using information technology, which includes its value proposition for partners and customers as well as its revenue streams.


    E business models25 l.jpg

    E-Business Models

    • E-business models can capitalize on digital data collection and distribution techniques without using the Internet.

    • Remember that e-marketing and e-business models may operate outside the Internet.

    • The term e-business models to include both Internet and offline digital models throughout the rest of our discussion.

    Value and revenue l.jpg

    Value and Revenue

    • Whether online or offline, the value proposition involves knowing what is important to the customer or partner and delivering it better than other firms.

    • Value encompasses the customer's perceptions of the product’s benefits, specifically its attributes, brand name, and support services.

    • Subtracted from benefits are the costs involved in acquiring the product, such as monetary, time, energy, and psychic.

  • Value = Benefits - Costs

    Menu of strategic e business models l.jpg

    Menu of Strategic E-Business Models

    • A key element in setting strategic objectives is to take stock of the company's current situation and decide the level of commitment to e-business in general and e-marketing in particular.

    • Questions prior to embarking on any e-business strategies:

      • .Are the business models likely to change in my industry?

      • .What does the answer to question 1 mean to my company?

      • .When do I need to be ready?

      • .How do I get there from here?


    E business models at various levels of commitment l.jpg

    E-Business Models at Various Levels of Commitment

    • Each level of the pyramid indicates a number of opportunities for the firm to provide stakeholder value and generate revenue streams using information technology.

    • Because there is no single, comprehensive, ideal taxonomy of e-business models, we categorize the most commonly used models based on the firm's level of commitment.


    Activity level e business models l.jpg

    Activity Level E-Business Models

    • Online purchasing. Firms can use the Web to place orders with suppliers, thus automating the activity.

    • Order processing. This occurs when online retailers automate Internet transactions created by customers.

    • E-mail. When organizations send e-mail communications to stakeholders, they save printing and mailing costs.

    • Content publisher. Companies create valuable content or services on their Web sites, draw lots of traffic, and sell advertising.Another type of content publishing, the firm posts information about its offerings on a Web site, thus saving printing costs = brochureware.


    Activity level e business models35 l.jpg

    Activity Level E-Business Models

    • Business intelligence (BI). This refers to the gathering of secondary and primary information about competitors, markets, customers, and more.

    • Online advertising. As an activity, the firm buys advertising on someone else’s e-mail or Web site.

    • Online sales promotions. Companies use the Internet to send samples of digital products (e.g., music or software), or electronic coupons, among other tactics.

    • Pricing strategies. With dynamic pricing, a firm presents different prices to various groups of customers, even at the individual level.


    Business process level e business models l.jpg

    Business Process Level E-Business Models

    • Customer relationship management (CRM) = retaining + growing business / individual customers through strategies that ensure their satisfaction with the firm and its products = keep customers for the long term + increase the number and frequency of their transactions.

    • Knowledge management (KM) = combination of a firm’s database contents + the technology used to create the system + the transformation of data into useful information and knowledge.

    • Supply chain management (SCM) = coordination of the distribution channel to deliver products more effectively and efficiently to customers.

    • With community building, firms build Web sites to draw groups of special-interest users. Firms invite users to chat / post e-mail on their Web sites to attract potential customers to the site.


    Business process level e business models37 l.jpg

    Business Process Level E-Business Models

    • Affiliate programs = when firms put a link to someone else’s retail Web site and earn a commission on all purchases by referred customers.

    • Database marketing = collecting, analyzing, and disseminating electronic information about customers, prospects, and products to increase profits.

    • Enterprise resource planning (ERP) = a back-office system for order entry, purchasing, invoicing, and inventory control.

    • Mass customization = Internet’s unique ability to customize marketing mixes electronically and automatically to the individual level.


    Enterprise level e business models l.jpg

    Enterprise Level E-Business Models

    • E-commerce refers to online transactions: selling goods and services on the Internet, either in one transaction or over time with an ongoing subscription.

    • Direct selling refers to a type of e-commerce in which manufacturers sell directly to consumers, eliminating intermediaries such as retailers.

    • Content sponsorship online is a form of e-commerce in which companies sell advertising either on their Web sites or in their e-mail.

    • A portal is point of entry to the Internet, such as the Yahoo! and AOL Web sites. They are portals because they provide many services in addition to search capabilities.


    Enterprise level e business models39 l.jpg

    Enterprise Level E-Business Models

    • A portal is point of entry to the Internet, such as the Yahoo! and AOL Web sites. They are portals because they provide many services in addition to search capabilities.

    • Online brokers are intermediaries that assist in the purchase negotiations without actually representing either buyers or sellers. The revenue stream in these models is commission or fee-based:

      • The brokerage model are E*Trade (online exchange), and eBay (online auction),

      • A B2B exchange is a special place because it allows buyers and sellers in a specific industry to quickly connect.


    Enterprise level e business models40 l.jpg

    Enterprise Level E-Business Models

    • Online agents represent either the buyer or the seller and earn a commission for their work.

    • Selling agents help a seller move product.

    • Manufacturer’s agents represent manufacturing firms that sell complementary products to avoid conflicts of interest.

    • The catalog aggregator, brings together many catalog companies to create a new searchable database of products for buyers.

    • A special type of agent = the metamediary, it represents a cluster of manufacturers, online retailers, and content providers organized around a life event or major asset purchase


    Enterprise level e business models41 l.jpg

    Enterprise Level E-Business Models

    • Purchasing agents represent buyers.

    • Shopping agents help individual consumers find specific products and the best prices online (e.g., www.mysimon.com).

    • The reverse auction, allows individual buyers to enter the price they will pay for particular items at the purchasing agent’s Web site, and sellers can agree or not.

    • An online purchasing agent is called a buyer cooperative or a buyer aggregator.

    • A virtual mall is similar to a shopping mall in which multiple online merchants are hosted at a Web site.


    Pure play l.jpg

    Pure Play

    • Pure plays = businesses that began on the Internet, even if they subsequently added a brick-and-mortar presence.

    • E.g. E*Trade is a pure play, beginning with only online trading

    • Pure plays face significant challenges: They must compete as new brands and take customers away from established brick-and-mortar businesses.

    • One way to change the rules is to invent a new e-business model, as Yahoo! and eBay did.


    An optimized system of e business models l.jpg

    An Optimized System of E-Business Models

    E-business is the continuous optimization of a firm’s business activities through digital technology.

    Firms usually combine traditional business and e-business models. E.g. Schwab = combined its online and offline brokerages in a unified system.

    • The challenge: customers expect a high degree of coordination between online and offline operations.

    • The danger: the established corporate culture might squash e-commerce initiatives or slow them down with the best of intentions.

    • The solution: Many businesses have spun off their e-commerce operations as wholly owned subsidiaries or pure plays so they can compete without the weight of the parent business.


    An optimized system of e business models44 l.jpg

    An Optimized System of E-Business Models

    A fully optimized e-business that uses the Internet to sell is the sum of multiple e-business activities and processes: E-commerce, business intelligence, customer relationship management, supply chain management, and enterprise resource planning as represented in the following equation:

    EB = EC + BI + CRM + SCM + ERP

    Performance metrics l.jpg

    Performance Metrics

    • The only way to know whether a company has reached its objectives is to measure results.

    • Performance metrics = specific measures designed to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of an organization’s operations.

    • Armed with this information, the company can make corrections to be sure it accomplishes the goal.

    • Performance metrics should be defined along with the strategy formulation so the entire organization will know what results constitute successful.


    Performance metrics47 l.jpg

    Performance Metrics

    • Performance metrics used to measure strategy effectiveness:

      • Translate the vision, strategy, or e-business model into components that have measurable outcomes that various departments can use to create action plans,

      • Communicate to employees what results the firm values.

      • When employee evaluations are tied to the metrics, people will be motivated to make decisions that lead to the desired outcomes.

    The Balanced Scorecard


    The balanced scorecard l.jpg

    The Balanced Scorecard

    BEFORE to measure success, firms used:

    • Financial performance,

    • Market share,

    • The bottom line (profits).

      BUT these approaches are narrowly focused and place more weight on short-term results rather than addressing the firm's long-term sustainability.


    The balanced scorecard50 l.jpg

    The Balanced Scorecard

    NOW, they use: The Balanced Scorecard

    = enterprise performance management systems that measure many aspects of a firm’s achievements.

    • 50% of organizations worldwide have adopted the Balanced Scorecard with excellent results.

    • The scorecard approach links strategy to measurement by asking firms to consider their vision, critical success factors for accomplishing it, and subsequent performance metrics in four areas: Customer, internal, innovation and learning, and financial.


    Four perspectives l.jpg

    Four Perspectives

    • The customer perspective:

      • Uses measures of the value delivered to customers.

      • These metrics tend to fall into four areas: time, quality, performance and service, and cost.

        E.g. Time from order to delivery, customer satisfaction levels with product performance, amount of sales from new products, and industry-specific metrics such as equipment up-time percentage or number of service calls.


    Four perspectives53 l.jpg

    Four Perspectives

    • The internal perspective:

      • Evaluates company success at meeting customer expectations through its internal processes.

        E.g.: cycle time (how long to make the product), manufacturing quality, and employee skills and productivity. Information systems are a critical component of the internal perspective for e-business firms.


    Four perspectives54 l.jpg

    Four Perspectives

    • The innovation and learning perspective

      = the growth perspective:

      • Companies place value on continuous improvement to existing products and services as well as on innovation in new products.

        E.g. Number of new products and the percentage of sales attributable to each; penetration of new markets; and the improvement of processes such as CRM or SCM initiatives.


    Four perspectives55 l.jpg

    Four Perspectives

    • The financial perspective:

      = Income and expense metrics as well as return on investment, sales, and market share growth.

      The point is to understand what the company wants to accomplish and devise performance metrics to monitor the progress and see that the goals are reached.


    Scorecard benefits l.jpg

    Scorecard Benefits

    • Obtain timely information to update its strategy.

    • Balance long-term and short-term measures and evaluate every part of the firm and how each contributes toward accomplishing selected goals.

    • It helps firms leverage their relationships with partners and supply chain members.

    • Go beyond financial metrics in measuring many different aspects that lead to effective and efficient performance.

    • Creates a long-term perspective for company sustainability.


    Scorecard benefits57 l.jpg

    Scorecard Benefits

    • Forces companies to decide what is important and translate those decisions into measurable outcomes that all employees can understand.

    • A great communication tool because employees can use the scorecard as a guide to coordinate their efforts.

    • Support employee evaluation in that individual performance can be tied to successful outcomes on the metrics.

    • A way to measure intangible as well as tangible assets.

    • The are flexible and allow firms to select appropriate metrics for their goals, strategies, industry, and specific vision.
