“Strategy is about making choices, trade-offs; it’s about deliberately choosing to be different” (Michael Porter, 1996). Porter’s hypothesis implies that for companies, choosing what not to do is as important as what to do. It means that strategy is the way a company moves from its current spot to where it wants to be. The strategy involves identifying choices to be made over the company’s journey to reach its goals.
Decision making to choose what to do or what not to do involves assessment of costs and benefits, and the consequences, of available options. Choosing one option as trade-off should be supported with information and analysis of relevant factors as the basis for recommendation and judgement. The process requires a deep and unbiased understanding on the dynamics of market, industry, and overall business setting. Such an understanding is crucial as the basis for company’s strategic choices: market entry, market expansion, launch new product, build distribution channel, do acquisition, or market exit.
