In the market of gymnastic equipment and warehouse both are very niche markets that allow the power to be evenly split between the suppliers and the buyer. If the buyer or the supplier were to try to change the price up or down there is enough competition in the market to just switch to another, but not so over saturated such that people are low balling each other to take over market share. Currently the competition in this market place is few and far through because in the city of Calgary along there is only 8 other gymnastic based centers, to whom all focus on different areas or styles of gymnastic teaching/ability. Rivalry with Flip Factory is almost no existent because of the change to the market place they are creating with professional …show more content…
Traviss has built up the company through its dynamically changing programs and treating customer well. This idea of evolution in the program is the greatest strength for Flip Factory because as the clients master a skill the program changes to accommodate that and then challenges them to learn more every visit. In alignment with the growth and change that Flip Factory has it works to have transparency and openness so unlike many other classes were parents can’t see the results or what they are practicing until the “performance” day Flip Factory has a mezzanine with open space to view as well as coffee/drinks to promote mingling with the parents as they wait and …show more content…
The positives of expanding is that the vision and difference of Flip Factory can then be experience by a multitude of people across the city, province, country and world. Growing the successful model will bring in additional revenue and now that the first location has worked through the bumps of a new business it will be easier to duplicate. Currently Traviss has great believe in her staff and their own growth potential which would be helpful when training new staff and giving management roles to the current staff at different places. Luckily the current staff/coaches at Flip Factory have a large network across Canada and the world so looking for partners would be easier and done through personal introductions instead of cold calling or pitches. Some cons to this plan of expansion is that Traviss has already worked hard to get to the place they are at currently and expansion especially internationally would take a big hit to her work/life balance as flights and travel would become a standard work we when setting up new locations. Also, depending on the approach that is taken self-expansion or franchising the

Porter’s Five Forces Porter’s Five Forces framework is to identify the level of competition within the industry and to determine the strengths or weaknesses which can utilise to strengthen the position.

Forces Analysis Implication Threat of new entrant Low Threat Diversified of product There are high demand of furniture and electrical appliance.
Another company is Sysco, a food-service distributor in the U.S. Porter demonstrates that “It led the move to introduce private-label distributor brands with specifications tailored to the food-service market, moderating supplier power. Sysco emphasized value-added services to buyers such as credit, menu planting, and inventory management to shift” (Porter, 2008, p. 90). Like Paccar, Sysco knows how to make them different from their competitors in the high competitive industry. In food industry, customers is very sensitive with price because they have many options for substitute, so companies must have a competitive prices. However, Sysco decides that they should add values to their products and improve connection with their suppliers.
Business Assessment An organization must identify its core competencies and strategically align those competencies with its business objectives to achieve success. In fact, C.K. Prahalad and Gary Hamel explained in the Harvard Business Review that the most powerful way for an organization to prevail is for it to “identify, cultivate, and exploit the core competencies that make growth possible” (2000). Lockheed Martin has thoroughly aligned its competencies, business objectives, and key performance indicators, which has undoubtedly contributed to the corporation’s effectiveness.

Switch costs and supplier concentration, we need to have constant suppliers and we did not change any suppliers so that we no need to face any problem about switching cost. If the switching costs are high, fewer buyers will change the suppliers because of switching costs. Indeed, without top quality technologies, organizations like LEAFXPRO Bicycles would not possess the capability to build innovative bicycles that are able to surpass
The adoption of new technologies and trends is being facilitated in the industry for the competition and the customer’s overall experience. Many suppliers that are having similar strategies face a strong competition. The barriers for exiting the markets are high. Products and services of are undifferentiated leading the customer to focus on the prices offered. Low market growth, so it can be increased only by taking another firm’s market share.
These suppliers are concentrated in Jakarta and can be purchased from for just-in-time procurement. The number of suppliers of this input is high as these materials can be procured from foreign suppliers as well. The cost of switching to another supplier is low and therefore, suppliers of this degree have little bargaining power. However, businesses in the mattress industry compete on technological superiority.
The company managers were not ready listen to the supplier’s problem. They want negotiation and dealing at their own cost. This power imbalance is creating a mess in the market because suppliers try to negotiate other retailers i.e. Aldi, IGA etc. This increasing duopoly of Coles and Woolworths will make market penetration very difficult for new entrants.
The level of rivalry in the market This force looks at how intense the current competition is in the market place. Rivalry is high when there are businesses selling the same product or service. Thus it is Mr Price Sports and the mrp Group’s responsibility to find out as much as they can about competitors. The mrp group as a company and now specifically Mr Price Sport has many competitors ranging from Woolworths to Cotton on.
This is also where price mechanism takes place because any changes in demand and supply, will affect the price, and eventually balancing the demand to be equal to supply. This is the reason why consumers and producers have no control over the price, and in this situation, everyone is considered as price takers. This causes a horizontal line in the demand curve for the firm’s product(s), as can be seen in Figure 1 (b). Figure 1 There are barely any barriers to enter this market, making it easy to enter and exit according to the firm’s capabilities.
