A business strategy is related to a Strategic Business Unit (SBU). An SBU can be a subsidiary or department within a big corporation, a country branch in geographically expanded companies and more generally any distinct domain of activity in a company.
Defining a strategy by business unit offers the opportunity for the adoption of several strategies at the same time which fosters flexibility, retaliation to competition and resilience in case of downturns.
It becomes therefore clear that a business that smartly sets the boundaries between its SBUs and defines the appropriate strategy for each will have found its way on the path of success.
IT is not an easy task though. In fact, very often there is no clear-cut separation of activities, especially in small companies; the same resources are used to serve the same customers and this entails
Another important challenge is to decide whether to go for a strategy that builds on the uniqueness of your offer or a strategy of cost reduction and to do this a very good knowledge of the customer and the competition is needed: who is exactly your customer? What do they value? Who is your competition? What are their prices and cost structure?...
Third, uncertainty has never been greater and the bases of success change at a pace that hardly can be followed by companies. That is why today’s companies need to learn how to influence the rules of the competitive game instead of simply being reactive.
