Porter’s Model of Competition

« Back to Glossary Index

A general model of the environment in which companies operate that suggests what factors strategists should monitor. The key factors are buyers, suppliers, competitors, new companies that might enter the market, and new products or technologies that might replace those on which your organization depends. The model is defined in Michael Porter's book Competitive Strategy (Free Press, 1985).
