A key component of strategic analysis and planning is the assessment of a company’s competitive advantage (referred to by some as competitive position). In the article by Michael Porter, he identifies five potential sources of competitive strength or vulnerability:
Existing level of competitive rivalry in the industry
Buyer bargaining power
Supplier bargaining power
Threat of substitute products
Threat of new entrants
Porter’s Competitive Forces model is an extension of his earlier work on strategy (Porter, M. E., 1996).
