What distinctive, sustainable capabilities (products, services, offerings) must we have to address our customers’ needs?
Sustainable competitive advantage is the cornerstone of profitable growth.
Businesses, after all, exist to provide value to customers and returns to their shareholders. Accordingly, their goal is to position the business so that it can achieve, over the long term, returns that are superior to competitors and compensate the shareholders for the risk they are taking.
And, the way to achieve long term superior returns remains straightforward—create and sustain an advantage over competitors.
But, competitive advantage derives from deep knowledge of the marketplace and the industry thus allowing the business to create and exploit the differences between its competitors.
Further, advantage is a relative term. It requires some other point of comparison to illustrate the benefits of one advantage over another. Those differences must be well understood relative to the value placed upon it by the customer.
And, since competitive advantage is fragile, it requires continuous improvement.
Once competitors understand a particular advantage, however, it can be copied, improved upon, or replaced with superior substitutes.
Consequently, understanding what those capabilities are and which ones are lacking or need substantial improvement is critical to building a lasting franchise and increasing shareholder value.
