1)  If someone is conducting the competitive analysis of the organization, which tool

would you prefer him/her for competitive analysis? Justify your answer with






First we come to know about the Competitive Analysis and that is:

As with any form of content analysis, you need to determine what you’re content goals are. Define the analysis criteria that you will use to assess content. This will help you focus your assessments. The more focused your findings are, the more actionable your insights will be. Competitor analysis is an essential component of corporate strategy.

  • The bargaining power of suppliers is the extent to which suppliers can exert power over business in an industry by threatening to raise prices or reduce the quality of goods and services they provide.


  • The bargaining power of buyers depends on the factors such as number of customers in the market, customer information, and the availability of substitute which determine the amount of influence that buyers have in an industry.


  • The threat of new entrants is the threat of a price war if new competitors can enter the market.


  • Porter's Five Forces model provides suggested points under each main heading, by which you can develop a broad and sophisticated analysis of competitive position.


  • It might be used when creating strategy plans, or making investment decisions about a business or organization.
