Cost leadership: When a company sells cheap and makes money
This lesson on Business strategy introduces the idea behind implementing a cost leadership strategy. Watch more at https://www.udemy.com/mba-in-a-box-business-lessons-from-a-ceo. Cost leadership consists in producing products or providing services that are cheaper than the ones offered by competitor companies. If a company adopts a cost leadership strategy and manages to sustain lower costs than its peers, then it will be successful. Typically, cost leaders will sell at lower prices than their competitors; this way, they are going to win price sensitive customers – the ones looking for a bargain. Selling at lower prices than competitors is a valid idea. However, companies need to find a way to do that. If you want to sell at a lower price, then you have to do something differently than your peers.

However, pricing decisions inconsistent with a firm’s competitive strategy can be dangerous, which is why companies should address the topic with much caution and attention. There are three important components we need to distinguish in this process. The amount a product costs to be produced, the price customers pay to buy the product, and the value they acquire from the product. If a company aims at cost leadership, then the focus will be costs (trying to keep them as low as possible). The company must offer a price slightly lower than the one offered by competitors. Conversely, if a firm’s strategy is differentiation, then the critical factor will be the value delivered to customers. Costs are not that important, as companies offering a differentiated product can charge more. So, pricing must be coherent with competitive strategy, although sometimes it is tempting to adjust prices to stimulate short-term gains of market share and increases of sales. Top-level managers have to stay focused on the big picture and make coherent decisions in line with the firm’s long-term 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.

Competitive Strategies
In this course, you will understand what distinguishes each of the five generic strategies and why some of these strategies work better in certain kinds of industry and competitive conditions than in others. A competitive strategy concerns the specifics of management’s game plan for competing successfully and securing a competitive advantage over rivals in the marketplace. It is important to understand what distinguishes each of the five generic strategies and why some of these strategies work better in certain kinds of industry and competitive conditions than in others. A low-cost leader’s basis for competitive advantage is lower overall costs than competitors’. Success in achieving a low-cost edge over rivals comes from eliminating and/or curbing “nonessential” activities and-or out managing rivals in performing essential activities. A low-cost provider strategy achieves lower overall costs than rivals and appealing to a broad spectrum of customers, usually by underpricing rivals. The essence of a broad differentiation strategy is to offer unique product or service attributes that a wide range of buyers find appealing and worth paying for. A low-cost provider strategy can always defeat a differentiation strategy when buyers are satisfied with a basic product and don’t think “extra” attributes are worth a higher price. The targeted segment, or niche, can be defined by geographic uniqueness or by special product attributes that appeal only to niche members. Niche strategies are focused closely on serving segment-specific or niche markets. Business strategy may alternatively be based on the process of product or service differentiation across a range of markets and market segments. Best-cost provider strategies are a hybrid of low-cost provider and differentiation strategies that aim at satisfying buyer expectations on key quality/features/performance/ service attributes and beating customer expectations on price. A company’s competitive strategy should be well matched to its internal situation and predicated on leveraging its collection of competitively valuable resources and competencies.

In business strategy, cost leadership is establishing a competitive advantage by having the lowest cost of operation in the industry. Cost leadership is often driven by company efficiency, size, scale, scope and cumulative experience (learning curve). A cost leadership strategy aims to exploit scale of production, well-defined scope and other economies (e.g., a good purchasing approach), producing highly standardized products, using advanced technology. In recent years, more and more companies have chosen a strategic mix to achieve market leadership. These patterns consist of simultaneous cost leadership, superior customer service and product leadership. Cost leadership is different from price leadership. A company could be the lowest cost producer yet not offer the lowest-priced products or services. If so, that company would have a higher than average profitability. However, cost leader companies do compete on price and are very effective at such a form of competition, having a low cost structure and management. The concept of cost leadership was developed by Michael Porter.

√ Strategic Role of Operations Management | Business Studies
https://www.iitutor.com Strategic means affecting all business functions. The strategic role of operations management is to contribute to the direction and plan of the business. The main goal of business is to minimise costs to maximise profits. A strategic role of operations is the management of costs. The different operations costs for a business are: Input costs, Labour costs, Processing costs, Inventory costs, Quality management. • Cost leadership aims to have the lowest costs and be the most prices competitive in the market. The business must still be profitable. Operations Management therefore must find ways to reduce costs in production. Example: Bunnings. A business can cut costs by increasing the scale/size of the business. How? By buying in bulk, the business is able to negotiate lower costs per unit. Goods/service differentiation: Tangible – they can be seen and touched. Tend to be standardised. Can be owned and transferred between people. Can take considerable time between production and consumption. Easy to determine costs by calculating inputs and adding margin. Services: Intangible. Generally customised. Cannot be owned. Production and consumption occurs at the same time. The value of a service depends on what the consumer is prepared to pay. Product Differentiation. Operations must find a way to distinguish their products from their competitors. This gives them a competitive advantage. This will differ between goods and services. Product Differentiation: Goods. Varying the actual product features. Operations search for ways to make their product features attractive to the consumer. Varying product quality. Making a low quality alternative to attract a different group of consumers. Varying the augmented features. This refers to add-ons or additional benefits. Product Differentiation: Services. Varying the amount of time spent on a service. Example: Hair salons. Varying the level of expertise brought to a service. Some service providers will offer a higher level of expertise. Varying the qualifications and experience of the service provider. This can be an important factor when consumers are choosing their service provider. Varying the quality of materials/ technology used in service delivery. Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Medical technologies. Cross Branding: Operations may choose to offer consumers added benefits from a cross-branding arrangement.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE meaning - COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE definition - COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Competitive advantage is a business concept that describes the attribute of allowing an organization to outperform its competitors. These attributes may include access to natural resources, such as high-grade ores or a low-cost power source, highly skilled labor, geographic location, high entry barriers, etc. Access to new technology can also be considered as an attribute of competitive advantage. Competitive advantage is the leverage that a business has over its competitors. This can be gained by offering clients better and greater value. Advertising products or services with lower prices or higher quality interests consumers. Target markets recognize these unique products or services. This is the reason behind brand loyalty, or why customers prefer one particular product or service over another. Value proposition is important when understanding competitive advantage. If the value proposition is effective it can produce a competitive advantage in either the product or service. The value proposition can increase customer expectations and choices. Michael Porter defined the two ways in which an organization can achieve competitive advantage over its rivals: cost advantage and differentiation advantage. Cost advantage is when a business provides the same products and services as its competitors, albeit at a lesser cost. Differentiation advantage is when a business provides better products and services as its competitors. In Porter's view, strategic management should be concerned with building and sustaining competitive advantage. Competitive advantage seeks to address some of the criticisms of comparative advantage. Competitive advantage rests on the notion that cheap labor is ubiquitous and natural resources are not necessary for a good economy. The other theory, comparative advantage, can lead countries to specialize in exporting primary goods and raw materials that trap countries in low-wage economies due to terms of trade. Competitive advantage attempts to correct this issue by stressing on maximizing scale economies in goods and services that garner premium prices (Stutz and Warf 2009). The term competitive advantage refers to the ability gained through attributes and resources to perform at a higher level than others in the same industry or market (Christensen and Fahey 1984, Kay 1994, Porter 1980 cited by Chacarbaghi and Lynch 1999, p. 45). The study of this advantage has attracted profound research interest due to contemporary issues regarding superior performance levels of firms in today's competitive market. "A firm is said to have a competitive advantage when it is implementing a value creating strategy not simultaneously being implemented by any current or potential player" (Barney 1991 cited by Clulow et al.2003, p. 221). Successfully implemented strategies will lift a firm to superior performance by facilitating the firm with competitive advantage to outperform current or potential players (Passemard and Calantone 2000, p. 18). To gain competitive advantage, a business strategy of a firm manipulates the various resources over which it has direct control and these resources have the ability to generate competitive advantage (Reed and Fillippi 1990 cited by Rijamampianina 2003, p. 362). Superior performance outcomes and superiority in production resources reflect competitive advantage (Day and Wesley 1988 cited by Lau 2002, p. 125). The quotes above signify competitive advantage as the ability to stay ahead of present or potential competition. Also, it provides the understanding that resources held by a firm and the business strategy will have a profound impact on generating competitive advantage. Powell (2001, p. 132) views business strategy as the tool that manipulates resources and creates competitive advantage, hence viable business strategy may not be adequate unless it possesses control over unique resources that have the ability to create such a unique advantage.

Strategy in Management
How important is strategic management? It largely determines which organizations succeed and which ones struggle. So, what does it mean to think strategically? Strategic thinking means to take the long-term view and to see the big picture, including the organization and the competitive environment, and consider how they fit together. Strategic Management refers to the set of decisions and actions used to formulate and execute strategies that will provide a competitively superior fit between the organization and its environment so as to achieve organizational goals. Strategy necessarily changes over time to fit environmental conditions, but to achieve competitive advantage, companies develop strategies that incorporate these elements - target specific customers, focus on core competencies, provide synergy, and create value. Organizations will thrive with a strategy based on targeting customers, exploiting core competencies, building synergy, and providing value. SWOT analysis is an audit or careful examination of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that affect organizational performance. Managers often start with a SWOT analysis, an audit or careful examination of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that affect organizational performance. The BCG matrix is concept developed by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) that evaluates strategic business units with respect to two dimensions— business growth rate and market share. The BCG Matrix is a simple tool for understanding and analyzing business strategy and formulating appropriate management plans. Porter’s Five Competitive Forces help determine a company’s position vis-à-vis competitors in the industry environment. Porter’s Five Competitive Forces include potential new entrants, bargaining power of buyers, bargaining power of suppliers, threat of substitute products and rivalry among competitors. Porter’s Five Competitive Forces help managers understand the forces that exist that will affect the strategic management of the organization. To find a competitive edge within the specific business environment, Porter suggests that a company can adopt one of three strategies: differentiation, cost leadership, or focus. A differentiation strategy is a strategy with which managers seek to distinguish the organization’s products and services from those of others in the industry. A cost leadership strategy is a strategy with which managers aggressively seek efficient facilities, cut costs, and use tight cost controls to be more efficient than others in the industry. A focus strategy is a strategy where managers use either a differentiation or a cost leadership approach, but they concentrate on a specific regional market or buyer group. In his studies, Porter found that some businesses did not consciously adopt one of these three strategies and were stuck with no strategic advantage. Without a strategic advantage, businesses earned below-average profits compared with those that used differentiation, cost leadership, or focus strategies. Managers should think carefully about which strategy will provide their company with a competitive advantage. The primary tools that managers use to implement strategy effectively: visible leadership, clear roles and accountability, candid communication, and appropriate HR practices. Managers use visible leadership, clear roles and accountability, candid communication, and appropriate HR practices to execute strategy effectively.

MonaPearl: How To Win Global Markets?
As competition continues to intensify both domestically and around the globe, so does the need to identify key competitive advantages and focus on core competencies. Quality products offered at competitive prices, although important, will not guarantee long-term success. Rather, businesses must answer a critical question: "Who would and why should they buy my products/services as opposed to the competition, and what is my long-term plan to remain competitive and succeed in growing the business globally?" If this question cannot be answered with clarity, it is time to step back and identify a position from which your product can gain traction and be distinguished from all the other competing products. Developing the right competitive advantage is key and will greatly improve your chances for success when launching into the global marketplace. Just remember that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy. Rather, the exact specifications of any strategy blend features from traditional models like cost leadership, differentiation, and focus to customize an approach suitable for the unique circumstances of your company, product, market, and culture of the target audience. Businesses with the skills to rapidly identify, innovate, and exploit new competitive advantages quickly and repeatedly will be formidable competitors both at home and abroad. How can corporate leadership take one large step back and look into the global marketplace to discover and assess new opportunities and new avenues to generate future growth?

What is Competitive Advantage?
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.

Operations and Supply Chain Management - Supply Chain Organizational Strategies
Full course: https://www.udemy.com/operations-and-supply-chain-management/?couponCode=PROMONOW Meeting Market Demand If you want to meet the volatile demands of the market with quality products and a timely delivery, it's important that you develop a strong supply chain strategy. A supply chain strategy provides the plan for an organization's supply chain. While business strategies provide direction and guidelines for company processes, a supply chain strategy implements these guidelines by integrating business plans and extending them throughout all aspects of the company. Supply Chain Organizational Strategies Companies can use a number of generic business strategies in order to strengthen their position in the market: differentiation, cost leadership, differentiation focus, and cost focus. Differentiation A company selects a differentiation strategy when it wants to produce and deliver goods or services that customers perceive as being different from competition in ways that are important to them. It conducts market research to find out what customers want, and it then develops a product to uniquely meet those needs. For example, a cell phone company might develop a phone that's more lightweight and sturdy than any other phone on the market. Cost leadership A company selects a cost leadership strategy when it wants to stress to customers that its product is cheaper than other similar products on the market. This strategy works best for products that are essentially similar. Customers might be more interested in better value than in apparently trivial differences between different offerings. For example, an airline might offer passengers cheaper flights without any extras. Differentiation focus A differentiation focus strategy is similar to a differentiation strategy. However, it focuses on a small section of the market. For example, a clothing company might offer designer clothing with matching accessories for its wealthier customers.
