Porsche Strategic Report
Length: 13 pages (3907 Words)
Porsche Strategic Report
Porsche is greatly influenced by many political, socio-cultural, economic, and environmental factors in its market segments. For instance, the change of the legislative and political structures in the United States has created significant problems for the automobile firm. The improvement of incomes and salaries for the common citizens has also influenced more individuals to purchase private automobiles. With its great focus on technological advancement, the company faces low technological barriers that enhance its competitiveness. The major strength of Porsche is that it has designed different models with different functions and different target customers. However, most of the Porsche automobiles are relatively high in prices as compared to its competitor brands. With its advanced engineering expertise, Porsche would successfully design and manufacture an electric Porsche 911 automobile. This is especially based on the fact that Porsche is the first and only luxury sports car manufacturer that has successfully built its car engine in the back of its automobiles, a factor that initially used to be physically impossible. The reason for its continued growth is the corporate culture it has developed. Porsche is established on the culture that values and promotes its employees as the most important asset for corporate success. The company is mainly characterized by a staff that is in manual work that is ever greatly valued. The Porsche employees are encouraged to embrace courage and creativity and sustain the spirit of innovation. This paper provides a strategic business analysis of Porsche.
