Before Picking a Business Strategy

We have talked about Differentiation Strategy and Cost leadership the
previous mondays, we will be talking about Cost Focus strategy this
week.
A cost focus strategy centers on a limited market segment or a
particular niche. It requires the company to understand the
idiosyncrasies of that market and the unique needs of those specific
customers.
Companies that pursue a cost focus strategy are taking a
risk by abandoning the mass market. While concentrating on a specific
demographic may develop a loyal pool of customers, the company is basing
its fortunes on a small group of buyers. The features that are
attractive to this niche market may not appeal to the broader market.
Before
selecting a business strategy you will need to identify the strengths
and weaknesses of the company in addition to highlighting market
opportunities and threats.
