a) Buyer Power: Customers have low bargaining power since they typically can't bargain for the price of their coffee but there are numerous coffee shops in the area. Overall there is high buyer power.
b) Supplier Power: low because there are many suppliers available giving us multiple options to chose from
c) Threat of Substitutes: High since there are multiple coffee shops in Winston Salem offering our primary product: coffee. Starbucks, Crankies, Panera Bread, Gas stations...
d) Rivalry Among Existing Competitors: High, refer to c.
e) Threat of New Entrants: High since start up costs for coffee shops are relatively low.

Analysing this from the perspective of our cafe, given the location - Near the school, on Deacon Blvd and near the stadium here is what I think

Buyer Power - Low, the population visiting this area is high, there are not many coffee shops around.

Supplier power - Our suppliers are the bean suppliers, we still want to go and get stock from those who sold the same variety as in our grandpa's age. We may not have a lot of option ?!

Threat of substitues - NC being a warmer place, there is always treat from substitues like Soda and other cold drinks. There is a Ihop and a few other gas stations close by.

Rivalary - Hmmm ... lots but not in that area. We are in a relatively safe location, but the cafe should not run out of business bcos of my incompetency :(

Threat of new entrants - This area is attracting a lot of new shops.... one of it can be a coffee shop. The probability is high.…...

... have a strong financial position despite a 53% increase in research and development and a 75% increase in capital expenditures over the past two years. Their net profit for 2003 rose by 8.3% to £1.26 billion, while revenues increased by 9.9% to £26.4 billion. BMW’s operating margins, at 8% in 2002 and 8.7% in 2001, were among the highest in the industry. BMW is able to keep overall costs down by using shared components across its similar-sized cars. For example, the 5 Series shares components with the X5 and the 6 Series, and the 3 Series shares various components with the X3, and the 1 Series. BMW identified the need for improved quality and customer care and as a result, now offers a four-year warranty, including maintenance and service, included in the price of the car. By doing this, BMW cut out complaints that occasional technological glitches made the brand extremely expensive to maintain. Weaknesses: BMW produced a new or updated model nearly every three months during 2005. This created much customer disinterest and concern regarding those particular models. They may want to shift their emphasis to creating new models in the market rather than focusing on issues that may be present within existing models - issues such as software, and mechanical problems. In addition, manufacturing costs compared with other volume producers are much higher. BMW's product development process is relatively more expensive and its purchasing costs are higher due to its supplier’s high...

Normative Model V. Force Field

...MEMO 14 October 2012 TO: Dr. Babcock, John FROM: NAME SUBJECT: Normative Model v. Force Field 1. Normative model is a model that will evaluate any alternative solutions to the question, “What is going on?” then suggests what is to be done according to a standard (Normative Model, 2012). There are limits to the amount of information a person can manage and there are shortcuts that can be used to simplify decision making. In this model, solutions that are chosen and meet the minimum requirements are good enough (Models of Decision-Making, 2012). The advantages of this method are looking at the alternative solutions, and a simplified decision making process. The concerns of the method are the “good enough” choices, and minimum requirements. The valid data generated from this model would include the chosen solutions for making a change within a company. The impact of readiness to change is affected by asking the question what is going on then finding a solution to it. The implementation concerns are the minimum requirements may not be what the company is looking for. 2. Force field analysis is a decision-making technique that analyzes forces for and against change to help communicate reasoning behind decisions (Force Field Analysis, 2012). This analysis is meant to look at all the factors included in the change process and evaluate the pros and cons. Then the company can create strategies to decrease the impact of contrasting forces and strengthen...

...2.Evaluation of Business Environment (SWOT/5-Forces Model) 1. Evaluate the progress Cathay Pacific has made on outsourcing their IT activities. Do their ideas make sense to you? Why? 1. Threat of new entrants--LOW * Large capital requirements * Industry regulation * Technical requirements * Pilot shortages * Government control () The airline industry requires large capital and high technical. Also, there are a lot of regulations within the industry. And many government now put pressures on new start-up aviation companies, take China as an example, Civil Aviation Administration of China now do not approve to set up new airline companies. New entrants into this field would face large barriers. Thus, the treat of new entrants is low. 2. Threat of substitutes—Medium * International routes-shipping * Domestic routes Long distance bus Railway High-speed rail… In the international routes, the substitute for airline is shipping. In domestic routes, the substitutes are long distance bus, railway, and high-speed rail. Although, these would take more time to reach destination. However, they are cost- effective choices especially the high-speed rail comparing with airplane. High-speed rail is gradually operating in a large scale with convenience and comfort. There is a saying that in the future, once the airplane could reach, so could high-speed rail. So we judge the threat of substitutes is medium. 3. Bargaining power of suppliers—LOW...

Porters 5 Force Analysis

...Porter’s 5 Forces Analysis = Suppliers, Customers, New Entrants, Substitute Products, Competitors What is Porter’s 5 Forces Analysis? Porter’s 5 forces analysis represents the competitive environment of the firm. It is a strategic foresight to avoid putting the competitive edge at risk and ensure the profitability of products on a long term. For the company this vision is quite important because the firm is able to direct its innovations in terms of choice of strategies and investments. The profitability of businesses within the industrial structure depends on the following forces: Competitive rivalry within the industry; Threats of new entrants; Threats of substitutes products; Bargaining power of customers; Bargaining power of suppliers. Golden Rules 6th force = Often the model is adjusted with a 6th force, the public authorities. This is important because the law and the norms can influence each of Porter’s 5 forces.

Six Force Model

...Six forces model: The six forces model is a market opportunities analysis model, as an extension to Porter five forces analysis and is more robust than a standard SWOT analysis. However, factors internal to the firm, which are often perceived to be the only true sources of sustained competitive advantage (Barney, 1991) are omitted. The following forces are identified: Competition New entrants End users/buyers Suppliers Substitutes Complementary products/ the government/ the public Criticisms of the five force model: Porter's framework has been challenged by other academics and strategists such as Kevin P. Coyne and Somu Subramaniam who have stated 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 competitive behavior. An important extension to Porter was found in the work of Brandenburger and Barry Nalebuff in the mid-1990s. Using game theory, they added the concept of complementors (also called "the 6th force"), helping to explain the reasoning behind strategic alliances. The idea that complementors are the sixth force has often been credited to Andrew Grove, former CEO of Intel Corporation. According to most references, the sixth force is government or the public.

Porter 5 Force

...Michael Porter’s 5 market forces framework. McDonalds Corporation continually monitors its performance to make sure it is competitive and profitable while also being aware of its immediate community responsibilities. This can be achieved by using the Porters 5 Forces model so the company is able to determine where its business needs to change or improve in order to stay competitive in the fast food industry. Porters 5 Forces model focuses on 5 key factors affecting the environment in which a business operates. The threat of substitute products A substitute product is one that can be used as an alternative to a company’s own. It could be argued that the threat of substitute to McDonald’s comes from pizzas and other domestic kebab and fast food houses. However, most of the above do not have the same level of convenience that McDonald’s offers, in having a number of outlets in big cities and also through the use of multiple drive-through outlets. The threat of new competitors The easier it is for new companies to enter the industry, the more cutthroat competition there will be. Factors that can limit the threat of new entrants are: * How loyal are the end users in this industry? * How troublesome or hard is it for the end users to switch and use another product? * Does it require a large seed capital to enter this industry? * Do entries to this industry regulated by government? * How hard is it to gain access to the...

Porter's Five Force Model of Itc

... function as a model to eliminate children from other industries or areas. The scope of the action plan, implemented by 20 special school and 50 non-formal education centres, is too limited. Out of 15,000 child labourers, only 1,000 children under 14 years of age could be weaned from the industry through the 20 special schools. The 50 non-formal education centres which are supposed to give non-formal education every day to around 1,500 child labourers next to their work in the industry, are irregularly attended by the child labourers and lack motivated teachers. Thus, 1,000 children are covered by the programme and around 1,500 child labourers get some non-formal education, but around 12,500 child labourers do not get any form of protection since also the Child Labour (Prohibition & Regulation) Act and other legislation have been hardly enforced. Parents got upset because only one child in a family (with often 5 to 9 children) could be admitted in a special school and the parents had to buy food and school items which were supposed to be provided by the schools. It is not known how many child labourers in Jaipur are completely illiterate and how many combine work in the gem industry with going to a government or private school; no census has been held to make an estimate of the number of child labourers in the gem polishing industry in Jaipur. Further, lack of involvement of the local community, parents and teachers in the decision making and implementation of the special...

Make sure you discuss each of the five forces in a separate paragraph or section. For purposes of this case, we will define the casino industry as including full-service, diverse entertainment (i.e. traditional) casinos of Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and treat other gambling alternatives (e.g. Native American casinos, riverboat gambling, etc.) as substitutes. When discussing each of the five forces, be sure to consider each of the factors relevant to each of these five forces as we discussed in class. In terms of Porter’s 5 forces analysis, the bargaining power of suppliers is weak because of the fact that casinos basically provide their own services with internal resources, such as employees properly trained in various casino games. The bargaining power of customers is strong, especially because even a slight change in the demand for casino services could directly impact the revenues of the...

5 Porter Force in the Beer Industry

... Industry Rivalry: The overall effect of rivalry on this industry is neutral. Threat of substitutes The availability of substitutes impacts industry profits because consumers may choose a substitute good over this industry. According the trade group Beverage Industry, alcoholic beverage consumption per capita has risen since 2000 at around 1 percent per year. This suggests that alcohol consumers on average are not substituting non-alcoholic beverages for the alcohol they currently consume. Therefore, in analyzing substitutes for the beer industry, we should focus our attention on other forms of alcohol, such as wine and liquor. Propensity to substitute between alternatives Currently, beer holds a majority of the market, but that majority may be fading. A recent Gallup poll showed that more Americans named wine over beer as their drink of choice (39 percent to 36 percent, respectively). This is in line with industry trends given that wine-industry sales grew 5% last year, while beer volume fell 1% from last years totals. The gap between wine drinkers and beer drinkers is closing rapidly. Also, liquor sales are rising, but at a slower rate than recent years. Therefore, the wine industry is the most imminent threat to beer brewers. No longer does the beer industry have an unquestioned control of the market. Price-performance alternatives Perhaps the biggest threat to beer brewing industry is that the switching cost of changing to a substitute good is......
