%ore competencies

%ore competencies are those capabilities that are critical to a business achieving competitive advantage. The starting point for anal!sing core competencies is recognising that competition between businesses is as much a race for competence master! as it is for market position and market power. Senior management cannot focus on all activities of a business and the competencies re4uired to undertake them. So the goal is for management to focus attention on competencies that reall! affect competitive advantage. %ore %ompetencies are not seen as being fixed. %ore %ompetencies should change in response to changes in the compan!'s environment. The! are flexible and evolve over time. /s a business evolves and adapts to new circumstances and opportunities3 so its %ore %ompetencies will have to adapt and change. 9e need to understand what we are good and what makes us better and to hone these advantages and to develop new ones to underpin the business strateg!

Strategic 0lanning 2ink with #arketing 0lanning


&usinesses that succeed do so b! creating and keeping customers. The! do this b! providing better value for the customer than the competition. #arketing management constantl! have to assess which customers the! are tr!ing to reach and how the! can design products and services that provide better value 5$competitive advantageA7. The main problem with this process is that the $environmentA in which businesses operate is constantl! changing. So a business must adapt to reflect changes in the environment and make decisions about how to change the marketing mix in order to succeed. This process of adapting and decision(making is known as marketing planning.

Strategic vs. #arketing 0lans Strategic planning is concerned about the overall direction of

the business.

-t is concerned with marketing3 of course. &ut it also involves decision(making about production and operations3 finance3 human resource management and other business issues.

The objective o a strategic plan is to set the direction o a business and create its shape so that the products and services it provides meet the overall business objectives! #arketing has a ke! role to pla! in strategic planning3 because it is the job of marketing management to understand and manage the links between the business and the $environmentA. Sometimes this is 4uite a straightforward task.
