Porter, Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors (New York: The Free Press, 1980). 2007 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved. 829

Types of Competitive Strategies Cost Leadership Strategy Seeking to attain the lowest total overall costs relative to other industry competitors.

Focus Strategy Using a cost or differentiation advantage to exploit a particular market segment rather a larger market. 2007 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved. 830

The Rule of Three Similar to Porters generic competitive strategies The competitive forces in an industry will create a situation where three companies (full-line generalists) will dominate a market. Some firms in the market become super niche players and while others end up as ditch dwellers. Firms unable to develop either a cost or differentiation advantage become stuck in the middle and lack prospects for long-term success. A few firms successfully pursue both differentiation and cost advantages. 2007 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved. 831 Strategic Management Today
