Our focus will be crafting a sound strategy. A company’s competitive strategy lays out the specific efforts of the company to position itself in the marketplace, please customers, ward off competitive threats, and achieve a particular kind of competitive advantage. The biggest and most important differences among competitive strategies boil down to:
a. Whether a company’s market target is broad or narrow
b. Whether the company is pursuing a competitive advantage linked to low costs or product differentiation.
Five distinct competitive strategy approaches stand out:
a. A broad low-cost provider strategy: striving to achieve lower overall costs than rivals and appealing to a broad spectrum of customers, usually by underpricing rivals.
b. A broad differentiation strategy: seeking to differentiate the company’s product/service offering from rivals’ in ways that will appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers
c. A focused low-cost strategy: concentrating on a narrow buyer segment and outcompeting rivals by serving niche members at a lower cost than rivals
d. A focused differentiation strategy: concentrating on a narrow buyer segment and outcompeting rivals by offering niche members customized attributes that meet their tastes and requirements better than rivals’ products
e. A best-cost provider strategy: giving customers more value for the money by incorporating good to-excellent product attributes at a lower cost than rivals; the target is to have the lowest (best) costs and prices compared to rivals offering products with comparable attributes.
