Usages[ edit ] Strategy consultants occasionally use Porter's five forces framework when making a qualitative evaluation of a firm 's strategic position. However, for most consultants, the framework is only a starting point.
They might use value chain or another type of analysis in conjunction. According to Porter, the five forces framework should be used at the line-of-business industry level; it is not designed to be used at the industry group or industry sector level.
An industry is defined at a lower, more basic level: A firm that competes in a single industry should develop, at a minimum, one five forces analysis for its industry. Porter makes clear that for diversified companies, the primary issue in corporate strategy is the selection of industries lines of business in which the company will compete.
The average Fortune Global 1, company competes in 52 industries . Criticisms[ edit ] Porter's framework has been challenged by other academics and strategists.
For instance, Kevin P. Coyne and Somu Subramaniam claim that three dubious assumptions underlie the five forces: That buyers, competitors, and suppliers are unrelated and do not interact and collude.
That the source of value is structural advantage creating barriers to entry. That uncertainty is low, allowing participants in a market to plan for and respond to changes in competitive behavior. Using game theorythey added the concept of complementors also called "the 6th force" to try to explain the reasoning behind strategic alliances.
Complementors are known as the impact of related products and services already in the market. Martyn Richard Jones, while consulting at Groupe Bulldeveloped an augmented five forces model in Scotland in It is based on Porter's Framework and includes Government national and regional as well as pressure groups as the notional 6th force.
This model was the result of work carried out as part of Groupe Bull 's Knowledge Asset Management Organisation initiative. Porter indirectly rebutted the assertions of other forces, by referring to innovation, government, and complementary products and services as "factors" that affect the five forces.
It is thus argued Wernerfelt  that this theory be combined with the resource-based view RBV in order for the firm to develop a sounder framework.A private company (established on private investments) Tags: Porter's five forces for airline industry, Porter's model for airline industry, 5 force analysis for Hong Kong airline industry, Case study on airline industry, Porter's analysis for the airline industry.
