Opening small retail store and segmented marketing Diversity in business Country specific management style Standardized retailer selection

IKEA Product positioningConcentrate people with blue collar jobs Cultural strategy (use of Swedish flag & style)

IKEA Modified Value ChainMichael Porter argues that an organization can enhance its competitive positioning by performing key internal activities in the value chain at a lower cost and better than its competitors. The value chain approach identifies two major activitiesprimary and secondary. Primary actives include production, marketing, logistics and after-sale functions. Secondary activities, on the other hand, are identified as support processes to primary activities.

Social ResponsibilityLow price but not at any price IKEA wants to create products with a minimum impact on the environment and make sure they are manufactured in a socially responsible way IKEA home furnishing stores may be the first major company in the country to take a stand against the ubiquitous waste. The Swedish manufacturer will no longer be offering customers free plastic bags. Every plastic bag at every IKEA store in the U.S. will cost five cents. The proceeds from the campaign will go to American Forests, the nation's oldest nonprofit citizens conservation organization, to plant trees to restore forests and offset CO2 emissions. As an alternative, and to influence customer habits in an environmentally responsible direction, IKEA is reducing the cost of its reusable 'Big Blue Bag' to 59 cents, from a dollar.

Corporate StrategyCorporate Strategy will ask you to answer fundamental questions such as "Why are you in business?" and "Why are you in this particular business?". This may appear to be a strange starting point but unless you can answer these type of questions you cannot produce vision statements and mission statements that have any real meaning.

IKEAs Corporate Strategy isProvide functional well developed furniture. At price so low That as many people as possible will be able to afford them. Creating a better every day life for the many people

Business StrategyPorters Generic Strategy


IKEA follows the focused cost leadership strategy. Young buyer in search of stylish and fashionable furniture and household accessories at low cost are IKEAs target market segment. Although a cost leader, IKEA also provides some differentiated features that appeals to it target customers including in-store playrooms for children, wheelchair for customers use and extended hour. IKEAs customers are actively involved in the shopping experience. The IKEA concepts relies on the choose, collect, transport and assemble IKEA products themselves. Customers involvement contributes to IKEA low price. That is the idea behind: You do your part. We do our part. Together we save money.


Strengths Cost efficiency Special perks (caf) Store layout Variety of products Assembly service offered Brand name equity Large inventory Value priced furniture Scale of economies Large supplier chain 1800 located in 50 different countries Delivery service Infrastructure system place

Weaknesses Limited number of styles (not everyone likes contemporarymodern) Customer has to assemble the product Product may not be as durable depending on who assembled it Low customer service available on retail store floor Customer has to pick furniture up from store



Opportunities Joint ventures Collaboration with other companies Collaboration with Unicef Huge market potential Western ideas and products valued by Indians More apartments and housing leases especially among younger generation

Threats Language barriers Counterfeit and substitute products Competitors Copycats (many local carpenters can make and sell the product cheaper) High import taxes Risk of economic instability or war


Free delivery service should be continued. Customization should be done in tune with local suppliers. Franchisees should be given to local people . Promotional strategy should be in accordance of the tastes of local people. They should come to untapped Indian market and other developing countries. Develop premium products for higher class people for developing niche market.
