Hengeveld Agenda for Today:  Agenda for Today Finish Dell Grant 7-9 Sunrise Medical Dana Farber Next week..:  Next week.. Grant 10-12, Winning Through Innovation Ch 1,2,3,7 The SIMS Online Case The Emergence of Competitive Advantage:  The Emergence of Competitive Advantage How does competitive advantage emerge? External sources of change e.g.: Changing customer demand Changing prices Technological change Internal sources of change Resource heterogeneity among firms means differential impact Some firms faster and more effective in exploiting change Some firms have greater creative and innovative capability Competitive Advantage from Internally-Generated Change: Strategic Innovation:  Competitive Advantage from Internally-Generated Change: Strategic Innovation Characteristics of innovation strategies: Associated with new entrants to an industry (e.g. Nucor in steel, IKEA in furniture, Enron in energy, Home Depot in DIY, Dell in PCs) Reconcile conflicting performance goals (e.g. Toyota’s lean production system combines low cost, high quality, and flexibility. Richardson Sheffield in kitchen knives is low cost, innovative and customer responsive.) Reconfiguring the value chain e.g.--- Nike’s system for manufacturing and distributing shoes totally different from traditional shoe manufacturer Southwest Airlines simplification of the normal airline value chain Zara’s system of design, manafacture, and distribution Competitive Advantage in Different Industry Settings: Trading Markets and Production Markets:  TRADING MARKETS None (efficient markets) Imperfect information availability Transactions costs Systematic behavioral trends Overshooting None Insider trading Cost minimization Superior diagnosis (e.g.... chart analysis) Contrarianism PRODUCTION MARKETS Barriers to imitation Barriers to innovation Identify barriers to imitation (e.g. deterrence, preemption, causal ambiguity, resource immobility,barriers to resource replication) & base strategy upon them. Difficult to influence or exploit. MARKET TYPE SOURCE OF IMPERFECTION OF COMPETITION OPPORTUNITY FOR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE Competitive Advantage in Different Industry Settings: Trading Markets and Production Markets Sources of Competitive Advantage:  Sources of Competitive Advantage Similar product at lower cost Price premium from unique product Features of Cost Leadership and Differentiation Strategies:  Features of Cost Leadership and Differentiation Strategies Generic strategy Key strategy elements Resource & organizational requirements COST Scale-efficient plants. Access to capital. Process LEADERSHIP Design for manufacture. engineering skills. Frequent Control of overheads & reports. Tight cost control. R&D. Avoidance of Specialization of jobs and marginal customer functions. Incentives for accounts. quantitative targets. DIFFERENTIATION Emphasis on branding Marketing. Product and brand advertising, engineering. Creativity. design, service, and Product R&D quality. Qualitative measurement and incentives. Strong cross-functional coordination. The Experience Curve:  The Experience Curve The “Law of Experience” The unit cost value added to a standard product declines by a constant % (typically 20-30%) each time cumulative output doubles. Cost per unit of output (in real $) Cumulative Output 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 Examples of Experience Curves:  Examples of Experience Curves 100K 200K 500K 1,000K 5 10 50 Accumulated unit production Accumulated units (millions) (millions) 1960 Yen 15K 20K 30K Price Index 50 100 200 300 70% slope 75% Japanese clocks & watches, 1962-72 UK refrigerators, 1957-71 The Importance of Market Share:  The Importance of Market Share If all firms in an industry have the same experience curve, then: relative costs = f (relative market share) This supported by PIMS data: BUT: - Association does not imply causation - Costs of acquiring market share tend to offset the returns to market share ROS (%) -2 0 5 10 0-10 10-20 20-30 30-40 over 40 Market Share (%) Drivers of Cost Advantage:  Drivers of Cost Advantage PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES PRODUCT DESIGN INPUT COSTS CAPACITY UTILIZATION MANAGERIAL/ ORGANIZATIONAL EFFICIENCY ECONOMIES OF LEARNING ECONOMIES OF SCALE Organizational slack Ratio of fixed to variable costs Costs of installing and closing capacity Location advantages Ownership of low-cost inputs Bargaining power Supplier cooperation Design for automation Designs to economize on materials Mechanization and automation Efficient utilization of materials Increased precision Increased dexterity Improved coordination/ organization Indivisibli\ties Specialization and division of labor Economies of Scale: The Long-Run Cost Curve for a Plant:  Economies of Scale: The Long-Run Cost Curve for a Plant Units of output per period Minimum Efficient Plant Size Cost per unit of output Sources of scale economies: - technical input/output relationships - indivisibilities - specialization Scale Economies in Advertising: U.S. Soft Drinks:  Scale Economies in Advertising: U.S. Soft Drinks Despite the massive advertising budgets of brand leaders Coke and Pepsi, smaller brands which incur the highest advertising costs per unit of sales 10 20 50 100 200 500 1,000 Annual sales volume (millions of cases) Advertising Expenditure ($ per case) 0.02 0.05 0.10 0.15 0.20 Coke Pepsi Seven up Dr. Pepper Sprite Diet Pepsi Tab Fresca Diet Rite Diet 7-Up Schweppes SF Dr. Pepper Cost Advantage in Short-Haul Passenger Air Transport:  Cost Advantage in Short-Haul Passenger Air Transport Costs per Available Seat-Mile (1993) Southwest Airlines United Airlines (cents) (cents) Wages and benefits 2.4 3.5 Fuel and oil 1.1 1.1 Aircraft ownership 0.7 0.8 Aircraft maintenance 0.6 0.3 Commisions on ticket sales 0.5 1.0 Advertising 0.2 0.2 Food and beverage 0.0 0.5 Other 1.7 3.1 Total 7.2 10.5 Key Stages in Applying the Value Chain to Cost Analysis: The Case of Automobile Manufacture:  Key Stages in Applying the Value Chain to Cost Analysis: The Case of Automobile Manufacture STAGE 1.

INTANGIBLE DIFFERENTATION Unobservable and subjective characteristics relating to image, status, exclusively, identity TANGIBLE DIFFERENTATION Observable product characteristics size, color, materials, etc. performance packaging complementary services DEFINITION: Providing something unique that is valuable to the buyer beyond simply offering a low price. (M. Porter) THE KEY IS CREATING VALUE FOR THE CUSTOMER Differentiation and Segmentation:  Differentiation and Segmentation DIFFERENTIATION: is concerned with how a firm competes within a market. SEGMENTATION: is concerned with where a firm competes within a market. Does differentiation imply segmentation? Not necessarily, depends upon the differentiation strategy: BROAD SCOPE DIFFERENTIATION: Appealing to what is in common between different customers (McDonalds hamburgers, Honda cars, Sears) FOCUSED DIFFERENTIATION: Appealing to what distinguishes different customer groups (BMW, Doc Marten footwear) Differentiation and the Product Life Cycle:  Differentiation and the Product Life Cycle New packages of hardware and software introduced SYSTEM Augmentation: repackaging of hardware and software PRODUCTS & SERVICES Decommoditization COMMODITY PRODUCTS & SERVICES Commoditization Desystematization: some packages unbundled Analyzing the Demand Side:  Analyzing the Demand Side Techniques for analyzing product attributes and positioning: Multidimensional Scaling Conjoint Analysis Hedonic Price Analysis Differentiation in Pain Relievers: Multidimensional Scaling of Competing Products in the U.S.:  Differentiation in Pain Relievers: Multidimensional Scaling of Competing Products in the U.S. High Low Low High EFFECTIVENESS GENTLENESS Tylenol Bufferin Excedrin Bayer Anacin Private label aspirin Identifying Differentiation Potential: The Demand Side:  Identifying Differentiation Potential: The Demand Side THE PRODUCT THE CUSTOMER What needs does it satisfy? By what criteria do they choose? What motivates them? What are key attributes? Relate patterns of customer preferences to product attributes What price premiums do product attributes command? What are demographic, sociological, psychological correlates of customer behavior? FORMULATE DIFFERENTIATION STRATEGY Select product positioning in relation to product attributes Select target customer group Ensure customer / product compatibility Evaluate costs and benefits of differentiation Differentiation of Hardware and Software:  SYSTEM PRODUCT SERVICE COMMODITY SUPPORT (SOFTWARE) Differentiated Undifferentiated Differentiated MERCHANDISE (HARDWARE) Undifferentiated Differentiation of Hardware and Software Consistency of Differentiation Strategy: Product Integrity:  Consistency of Differentiation Strategy: Product Integrity Key to successful differentiation is consistency of all aspects of the firm’s relationship with its customers. Product Integrity: the total balance of product features Internal integrity: consistency between function and structure External integrity:fit between the product and the customers’ objectives, values, lifestyle etc.. Slide29:  Producer’s strategies High quality Low quality High 7 10 Consumer’s price 7 -5 strategies Low -5 3 price 10 3 Note: In each cell, the lower left number is the payoff to the consumer and the upper right number is the payoff to the producer. The problem of experience goods : quality can only be ascertained after purchase. Hence: Prisoner’s Dilemma:- Equilibrium reached with consumer paying a low price for a low quality item. If producer can signal quality--- both consumer and producer can move to preferred position: high quality product carrying a high price Using the Value Chain to Identify Differentiation Potential on the Supply Side:  Using the Value Chain to Identify Differentiation Potential on the Supply Side FIRM INFRASTRUCTURE HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT INBOUND OPERATIONS OUTBOUND MARKETING SERVICE LOGISTICS LOGISTICS & SALES MIS that supports fast response capabilities Training to support customer service excellence Unique product features.

Technology-intensive industries (e.g. pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, computers) may retain features of emerging industries. Other industries (especially those providing basic necessities, e.g. food processing, construction, apparel) reach maturity, but not decline. Industries may experience life cycle regeneration. Sales Sales 1900 ‘50 ‘60 ‘90 1930 50 60 90 MOTORCYCLES TV’s Life cycle model can help us to anticipate industry evolution—but dangerous to assume any common, pre-determined pattern of industy development.
