    An Interview with Michael E. Porter, Professor, Harvard University.
    Porter’s five competitive forces is the basis for much of modern business
    strategy. Understand the framework and how to put it into practice.

  11. I have some new understandings for the five forces now!

    Oh! This is great! Now to get my hands on the article. :)

  14. The analysis that can be performed based on the Porter model seem sensitive
    to hindsight bias. We look at airline industry and know that it is not
    profitable and then just look at the evidence and point out: “ha!” the
    model works!
    The same for soft drinks industry.
    I think it is much more difficult to make use of this model when you are
    already in a difficult position in a particular industry, or when you want
    to enter a in new industry yourself.
    I think aside from the structure of an industry, which is at the core of
    this model, it is important to take into consideration how well you can
    differentiate yourself from the competition in a way that can catch on to
    clients and how well you can retain this competitive advantage. If that’s
    the case, maybe the industry does not matter as much from the 5 forces
    perspective rather than the product/ the need/ and differentiability.
    Nevertheless, I find the model interesting and will continue to see how it
    could work.

    Michael’s point on great leaders know or have an opinion on the future of
    their industry is so true. All great leaders have a vision as to the macro
    forces that are impacting, or are going to impact on their company.
    Essentially they align themselves, and there companies with massive trends
    is everything.

    talkshows and debate to continuously make his case stronger . Igor Ansoff

    What?? Which flight has the greatest market share? National or
    international flight? And he says it is substitutable with trains and car
    drive? That is funny.
