and the discussion of their overall impact on the

industry growth in the future. Draw your conclusion based on your macro-environment analysis.

 

3. Undertake an industry (competitive) analysis using Porter’s 5-forces model. You are required to pay

 

attention to the purpose of this analysis, the inter-connectedness of different aspects of the competitive

 

forces, the links between the competitive forces and macro-environment, and their overall impact on

 

the industry and the organization selected in terms of main driving forces in the competitive

 

environment. Draw your conclusions based on your five-force analyses.

 

4. Identify those resources and competences of the firm (or SBU) that are likely to provide sustainable

 

competitive advantage. Justify why these resources and competences can be regarded as strategic

 

capabilities using the four criteria covered in the textbook.

its strategy statement and/or its value chain activities.

suitability of the firm’s current business strategy based on the outcomes of your analysis

and integration above (e.g., the identification of the firm’s current business strategy and the most

 

significant factors affecting the firm’s performance, and your understanding of business strategy).

 

References should be utilised within this Report to validate the information presented, and should be drawn

 

from academic sources and organisational information such as the website and annual reports. The business

 

press may be used sparingly to identify relevant issues.
