Chapter 2 – Basics for Successful Strategy
Business strategy is at the root of effective performance measurement and control for 2 reasons:
1. Performance measurement and control systems provide the analytic discipline and
communication channels to formalize business strategy and ensure that strategic goals are
communicated through the business
2. Performance measurement and control systems are the primary vehicle to monitor the
implementation of these strategies
Corporate Strategy and Business Strategy
Corporate Strategy: The way that a firm attempts to maximize the value of the resources it
controls. The focus is on where corporate resources will be invested.
Business Strategy: How to compete in defined product markets. Before managers develop
specific business strategies, they must analyze and understand:
1. The competitive market dynamics in their industry. Relating the internal strengths and
weaknesses of the firm to external opportunities and threats in the marketplace.
2. Their own firm’s resources and capabilities
Competitive Market Dynamics
Five forces: The five forces analysis provides a useful framework and checklist for analyzing the
competitive dynamics of any given industry. The five forces that determine the degree and nature
of competition are:
1. Customers
2. Suppliers
3. Substitute products
4. New entrants
5. Competitive rivalry

Assets: A resource, owned or controlled by the entity, the bank, and inventory

semi permanently to the firm
