The Role of Competitive Groups in Stratgey Formulation -- A Dynamic Integration of Two Competing Models
Alternative conceptualizations of competitive groups have been developed in the strategic management literature, namely, the ‘strategic group’and the ‘cognitive group’. These two views each have their own paradigm base and are often seen as incompatible explanations of intra-industry structure. This article analyses these two views and presents a model for each. It then goes on to develop an integrated model which uses both concepts as tools in framing strategy research. Propositions about the new model are also presented.
