Long & Vickers-Koch

  • Mintzberg - successful strategies tend to be visions, not plans


Core capabilities

Threshold Capabilities

Support (internal)

Basic (required)

Core Capabilities

Critical (today’s advantage)

Cutting Edge (tomorrow’s advantage)

Core Capabilities


Williams companies

Williams Companies

  • Gas Pipelines to Fiber Optics

    • What’s the connection?

    • What’s the core capability?

  • What about Pioneer and Domino’s?


Creating value

Creating Value

  • low cost

  • best product features and quality

  • meeting each customer’s needs and special services


Choosing strategy

Choosing Strategy

  • Must match core capabilities to strategy, because:

    • it must be hard for competitors to copy

    • it is also hard for your own company to change


Barney

Barney

  • When performing SWOT analysis, rate internal assets by:

    • value

    • rareness

    • immitability

      • (Caterpillar 2-day part policy)

    • organization

      • (Walmart’s reporting structure for many rural stores)


Cola wars

Cola Wars

  • Pepsi challenge in Houston

    • 7-14% share growth

    • price was reduced to half to get it done

  • No longer head to head competition

  • Coke

    • older customers (Diet Coke), soft drinks, international

  • Pepsi

    • younger customers (new generation), fast-food diversification, domestic


Porter

Porter

  • What is strategy?

    • Operational effectiveness

      • not strategy

      • necessary but not sufficient

    • Strategy rests on unique activities

      • Southwest Airlines

      • Ikea


Origins of strategic positions

Origins of Strategic Positions

  • Variety-based

    • choose products or services rather than customers (Jiffy Lube, Vanguard)

  • Needs-based

    • customer segment (cans, banking)

  • Access-based

    • reaching customers - geography is one

    • (Carmike Cinemas)


Three generic strategies

Three generic strategies

  • Sustainable Strategic Position

    • cost-based

    • differentiation

    • focus

  • Trade-offs are necessary

    • inconsistent image or reputation

    • mutually exclusive activities

    • limits on internal coordination and control


Long vickers koch

Fit

  • Three levels of fit

    • simple consistency (Vanguard)

    • reinforcing activities (Neutregena, BIC)

    • optimization of effort (GAP)

  • Advantage grows out of the entire system and leads to sustainability

    • competitors must match the system

      • matching just one can lead to declining performance

      • joint probabilities of matching all?

      • (Continental Lite v. Southwest)


Alternative views of strategy figure 8 page 450

Old Implicit Model

one, ideal position

benchmarking

outsourcing

partnering

key success factors

flexible, rapid responses to competitors

New Sustainable Model

unique company position

tailor activities to strategy

clear trade-offs and choices w.r.t. competitors

advantage arises from fit

sustainability from system

operational effectiveness given

growth is a trap?

Alternative Views of Strategy Figure 8 (page 450)


D aveni

D’Aveni

  • Hypercompetition

    • rapidly escalating competition based on price-quality positioning

    • results from:

      • new knowledge - first mover advantage

      • protecting or invading product or geographic markets

      • deep pockets (deeper with alliances)

      • (Seed industry?)

    • Moving toward perfect competition

      • sustainable competitive advantage is difficult


Levels of industry competition

Levels of Industry Competition

  • No Competition

    • monopoly, patents, excessive profits

  • Competition Avoidance

    • segmentation, barriers to entry, tacit cooperation, sustainable advantage and profits possible only if competitors collaborate

  • Hypercompetiton

    • aggressive positioning by disadvantaging competitors, creation of new advantages, new arenas, advantages are temporary with profits until catch-up or next move

  • Perfect Competition

    • players equal, compete on price, no abnormal profits, not preferred over lower levels of competition


7 s s disrupting the market

7 S’s - Disrupting the Market

  • Vision

    • superior stakeholder satisfaction

    • strategic soothsaying

  • Capability

    • positioning speed

    • positioning surprise

  • Tactics

    • shifting the rules

    • signaling intent

    • simultaneous and sequential thrusts


Vision

Vision

  • Identify new customer needs that the customer doesn’t currently know.

  • Find new customers.

  • Create new needs.

  • Predict change.

  • These require strategic soothsaying.


Hypercompetion

Hypercompetion

  • Trade-offs among the 7 S’s are inevitable.

  • The 7 S’s will remain advantageous:

    • flexible

    • dynamic

    • there are trade-offs, you can’t use them all
