Porter’s Five Forces Model

Five Forces Radar Diagram

The relative power of each force is reflected in each of the five axes from a high to a low rating.

The total area enclosed by the lines between the axes represent the profit potential of the industry (Johnson et al., 2014, p.53).

In the text book two radar diagrams are plotted, illustrating competitive forces over time.

Exploring Strategy: Text & Cases, 10th edition (2014) pp. 76-82 by Johnson et al.

Originally developed in his work ‘Firm Resources and Sustained Competitive Advantage’ four attributes that a firm’s resources must possess in order to become a source of sustained competitive advantage were identified; valuable, rare, imperfectly imitable and non-substitutable.

In his later work ‘Looking Inside for Competitive Advantage’ Barney introduced the VRIO framework, which was an improved version of VRIN;



costly to imitate?

firm organised to capture the value of the resources?

VRIO Framework (Barney, 1995)

VRIO analysis – Education Provider

Value chain analysis

Example: Value chain mapping can used to understand how to improve quality (or lower costs) to understand how the various activities in delivering care fit together with the patient as the focus as opposed to the creation and delivery of a product or service. Connecting patients to the right services so that they benefit from the entire set of activities required for proper care.
