Critical Thinking: Industry Analysis (105 points)

To prepare for this assignment, review Figures 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.5, and 3.6 from your textbook. Select a Saudi Arabian company, identify the industry in which it competes, and identify its three main competitors. Complete an Industry Analysis by answering the following questions.

  1. Analyze      and predict industry profitability:
    1. Apply       a detailed Porter’s Five Forces framework with a graphic representation       (Figure 3.3) and written explanation for your selected company in       relation to the Five Forces.
    2. Given       the Five Forces analysis outcomes, predict the level of industry       profitability expressed as high, intermediate, or low.
  2. Implications      for strategy:
    1. What       strategies can the rival companies adopt to reduce competitive pressure       and improve industry profitability?
    2. Which       strategies do you recommend for your company to improve its       competitiveness, position, and earnings?
  3. Identifying      Key Success Factors (KSFs)—What are the KSFs of your company?
    1. See       Figure 3.6. Who are the customers and what do they want?
    2. See       Figure 3.6. How does the company survive competition?
    3. Has       your company’s KSFs changed over time?

Your well-written paper should meet the following requirements:

  • Be 6      to 7 pages in length, which does not include the required title and      reference pages, which are never a part of the content minimum      requirements.
  • Support      your submission with course material concepts, principles, and theories      from the textbook and at least two scholarly,      peer-reviewed journal articles unless the assignment calls for more.
