In my opinion, I think that the Porter five forces model is still relevant in today’s competitive environment. It is because porter’s five forces can give the managers in the corporate to analyse the current situation of their industry in a structured and understand easily way (Porter 2001). Based on the strategic management view, it is good for managers of any organization in the similar industry or sectors to understand the five competitive forces acting and between organizations in the similar industry or sector. Secondly, this model can used to compare the impact of competitive forces on their own organization with the impact on their competitors. Competitors may have the different options to react towards the changes in competitive forces from their different resources and competences (Porter 2001).
Do you know how to come up with competitive, successful business strategies for your company as a management? As the world changes constantly and unpredictably, competitive strategies are of great significance to the survival of a company among fierce competition, because the fact remains that every organization in a certain industry works hard to satisfy their customs as well as possible. In the Futurics article” Business Strategy”, Vu (2007) focuses his attention on essential features of a successful strategy and methods of developing and maintaining a competitive advantage. Vu’s conclusion of competitive business strategies associated with dynamic and flexibility, the comparison between the resource-based view and the industrial organization
Companies make decisions all the time. Sometimes if the company is a big one, then the decisions are usually big ones too. One of these large decisions is the choice of if a company should enter into a new business segment or not. There is a very useful theory by Michael Porter who developed the Five Forces Model of Evaluating Business Segments. (Batlzan,Detlor,Welsh 2012) In today’s business top managers need structure when making decisions and this helps, but they also need accurate and up to date information from all parts of the business process.
This study was carried out to evaluate some of the genetic and non-genetic factors influencing milk production and reproductive performances of these Sahiwal-Friesian breed groups. The dairy industry is the sector with the highest degree of protection due to the economically vulnerable position of small milk producers. Milk also known as white gold, which can be used to make an enormous variety of high quality products. The high cost of milk as a raw material has necessitated a high-tech processing industry. The special nature of milk (perishable and bulky) leads to the necessity of strict and comprehensive quality regulation and to high transport costs.
Porter identifies in the text there are six known forces, even though he only mentions five in the text, that determine the level of competitive force in an Industry. It is significant for an industry to analyze itself to determine what there strength and weaknesses are to be able to succeed they need these five forces: threat of new entries, rivalry among existing firms, threat of substitute products or services, bargaining power of buyers, bargaining power of suppliers, and relative power of other stakeholders. The threat of new entrants into the industry can be a big, due to the greater number of competitors with equal or the same products and service can sway the power of the industry. New entrants are attracted by the profitability

Understanding these strategic tools is starting point and essential for Starbuck towards developing a successful long-term strategy for the organizations going forward. It also provides Starbuck a foundation for sizing up its strength and weaknesses. Therefore Starbuck should use these analyses to create and sustain competitive advantages, in order to cope and incorporate industry conditions and organization’s capabilities into their strategy. Porter (2008: p88) suggests that five forces assist managers to develop a productive strategic action to better cope with industry competition, forecast & exploit changes in the industry and form balance between the five forces to build a more positive industry structure for the firm.

Instead of the same focus on internal processes and structure, the next major transformation likely will come as organizations turn more to the outward market (Wooddruff, 2015). Driven by global competiton the creative arts are prime for the global marketplaces and can offer additional value to customers. In the works of Michael Porter, there are five forces that shape the industry competition that appeal to the creative arts strategies, as well as, to the whole industry. The five forces are potential entrants, substitutes, buyers, suppliers, and industry competitors. These five forces of competitive strategy determine the profitability of each player in the industry, and the goal of competitive strategy of each company is to find a position of best defense.
The forces driving the competition and the intensity of the competition in an industry, are due to its principal economic structure and the behavior of the competitors (Porter, 1998). Therefore, the state of competition as shown in Figure 1 depends on five competitive factors such as industry competitors - rivalry, potential entrants, buyers, suppliers, and substitutes. As Porter(1998) states “ the collective strength of these forces determines the ultimate profit potential in the industry, where profit potential is measured in terms of long terms of long run return on invested capital.” Therefore, this chapter will focus on the strengths of the competitive forces that drive the organization towards industry profitability by the identification of the structural features of the industry. 1.1.1 Rivalry - Industry Competitors When analyzing the market, it is understood that the customer plays a huge role and that there is a very low switching cost for the customer due to the very low number of competitors. Even though this is an opportunity to the company at times this opportunity can be a threat to the company.
