The challenges of creating sustainable competitive advantage in large B2B multidivisional corporations
Keywords:Strategy, Sustainable Competitive Advantage, B2B, Multi-divisional, Horizontal Strategy
It addresses the challenges that large multi-divisional B2B corporations face each day to take advantage of their corporate strategy and ensure sustainable competitive advantages. The synergies and interrelations that would give them such a position are not always simple to be achieved or even perceived by customers. The chosen approach was focused on B2B companies, because processes and communication tend to be more truncated, as they are usually more technical in the way of doing business. This can make the challenges of interrelation and synergy even greater.
