Competitive advantage is the ability gained through attributes and resources to perform at a higher level than others in the same industry or market TASK
Create a definition Competitive Advantage Strategy Strategy is a coordinated and integrated set of where-to-play, how-to-win, core capability, and management system choices that uniquely meet a consumer's needs, thereby creating competitive advantage and superior value for a business. Strategy is: A diagnosis that defines or explains the nature of the challenge A guiding policy for dealing with the challenge A set of coherent actions that are designed to carry out the guiding policy 1 2 3 GOOD or BAD Look for Fluff & it uses "Sunday" words to create the illusion of high-level thinking

ADVANTAGE ? Homework check! A powerful and sustainable competitive advantage is unlikely to arise from one capability, but rather from a set of capabilities that both fit one another and actually reinforce one another P&G example P&G asked himself; What capabilities must P&G , as a global company, have to win across industries in which it would compete? Companies can be good at a lot of things, but not distinctively good at it to win. Does P&G needs to be distinctively good at manufacturing? You may be tempted to simply ask what are you really good at and build strategy from there Not all the elements need to be unique or impossible to replicate. It is the combination of capabilities, the activity system in its entirety, that must be inimitable Understand 1. The Industry
2. Customers
3. Relative position
