Porter's Five Forces

The competitive forces that shape strategy — in under two minutes.

Industry structure changes over time, and is not static. Over time, buyers or suppliers can become more or less powerful.

Choices by competition, such as new pricing or distribution approaches, can also affect the path of industry competition.

Managing Up: 1 on 1 Template

Managing your boss is the best way to achieve career goals within any size organization. It requires a consistent, data-driven approach. Meet for at least 30 minutes either weekly or bi-weekly.
