The content in Module 2 includes the study of frameworks that may be used to assist in industry analysis. The discussion this week centers on frameworks and their usefulness, attributes, and strengths.
Table 2.1 in your textbook, Foundations of Strategy, shows a listing of profitability of U.S. industries. Pick an industry of interest to you, and research leading Middle Eastern companies in that industry. Develop a convincing argument that Porter’s Five Forces Model would or would not be a useful tool for this industry.
Tip: Using the Saudi Digital Library search engines, and key words such as industry analysis framework, industry analysis comparison, nonprofit strategy, 4 Ps model, Porter’s Five Forces, and others, will yield plenty of credible resources to use in this discussion.
- Embed course material concepts, principles and theories, which require supporting citations along with at least one scholarly peer-reviewed reference in supporting your answer unless the assignment calls for more. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.
- You need to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
- Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines.
