Example text

These were aimed at two entirely different markets; the first for superior family cars, the second for industrial workhorses. In the market for quality cars it positioned a well trimmed version, called Discovery, for a limited set of potential customers and against a known set of competitors: other quality cars. It produced a tailored offering for a narrowly defined market, Creating Value was able to charge a high price and earn high margins. This competitive positioning of the offering in the eyes of customers was an excellent example of a competitive strategy.

That is clearly correct, but it does not make a case for calling such actions strategic. Special scrutiny is needed for one of the many arguments used by the ‘emergent’ school: the appeal to how managers actually use the word ‘strategy’. Managers are usually under pressure to cut corners and to stop short of perfection. Under pressure it is not always easy or even possible to maintain the prudence or the discipline to think ahead. Not unnaturally however in such conditions managers would still like to dignify all their decisions or unplanned actions, however trivial, with the status symbol of a ‘strategy’.

Corporate culture is something more fundamental than what this book calls a strategy. On the other hand, lower level cultures like attitudes to customers are closely associated with the company’s winning and other resources,25 which should be largely, but not invariably, taken as given. These lower level cultures can be ancillary to a strategy. Values, objectives and mission statements stop well short of action plans. This can be illustrated from the corporate philosophy of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).
