The Competitive Strategy Summary

The Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors by Michael E. Porter

Electrifying in its simplicity - like all great breakthroughs - COMPETITIVE STRATEGY captures the complexity of industry competition in five underlying forces. Author Michael Porter introduces one of the most powerful competitive tools yet developed: his three generic strategies - lowest cost, differentiation, and focus - which bring structure to the task of strategic positioning. He shows how competitive advantage can be defined in terms of relative cost and relative prices, thus linking it directly to profitability, and presents a whole new perspective on how profit is created and divided.

More than a million managers in both large and small companies, investment analysts, consultants, students, and scholars throughout the world have internalised Porter's ideas and applied them to assess industries, understand competitors and choose competitive positions. COMPETITIVE STRATEGY has filled a void in management thinking. It provides an enduring foundation and grounding point on which all subsequent work can be built. Porter's rich frameworks and deep insights comprise a sophisticated view of competition unsurpassed in the last quarter-century.

The Competitive Strategy Reviews

Fortune Three overarching game plans that work in one industry after another explain how thousands of real-world competitors come out on top.
Philip Kotler author of Principles of Marketing Porter's books on competitive strategy are the seminal works in the field.
The New York Times American executives are grasping for a logic to global competition. Mr. Porter...has given them one.
Choice Few books warrant the too-common publisher's blurb "landmark." This one does. Highest recommendation.
Strategic Management Journal Represents a quantum leap...may well be one of the most important contributions to the discipline of strategic management.
Journal of Business Strategy Any manager who studies and uses the material in this book should be able to devise more successful strategies.
