 In competitive industries, most of the time, companies must look within and find ways to reduce the cost of bringing a product from the raw material to finished stage to remain competitive in the long run.

The computer microchip industry, in particular, is very competitive. Whenever a new microchip comes into the marketplace, the makers of clone microchips release a clone microchip that is almost as good as the original but priced considerably lower.

Consider the following scenario:

The Smart Chips Company specializes in developing first-of-its-kind microchips; yet, its market share has been hurt by clone microchips. Use internet, course materials, and other credible sources to research the concept of Michael Porter’s Value Chain Management.

 

·  How you would put this concept to work, specifically at the Smart Chips Company, to help it remain competitive in the long run?

·  What other management concept(s) covered in this course would be helpful to Smart Chips? How would you incorporate them into the Smart Chip’s culture?

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
