Abstract

Porter’s extraordinary record of private, public, academic, and corporate accomplishment has diverse roots, but it is clear that the genesis, publication and impact of Competitive Strategy shifted a promising career as a young award-winning Harvard economist into a very different gear. In this chapter we puzzle why the book has such impact and with whom – evidently widely embraced by managers, policy makers, consultants, and strategy teachers, though often criticized for its shortcomings by strategy theorists.

Keywords: five forces framework, competitive strategy, porter, framework
