Look at competition today in the automobile, airline, and even clothes industries. The word “Competition” can bring out the best or the worst in an organization. Microsoft was had legal charges brought against them years ago for attempting to eliminate competition and even monopolize the market. When organizations focus strongly on current competition, new organizations slowly begin to slip into the industry. This was the case many years ago with the Big Three (Chrysler, Ford, and GM). They were very focused on each other and really did not pay attention to Toyota. Now, according to US News, the top four wealthiest automakers are Toyota ($214 Billon), Volkswagen ($101 Billon), Daimler (Mercedes-Benz) ($84.3 Billon), and BWM ($71. Billion). The Big Three has dropped tremendously; GM is ranked sixth ($52.9 Billion), Ford is eighth ($44.1 Billon), and Fiat Chrysler is tenth ($36.6 Billon). When new companies begin coming into the market, this can create many problems with competition. In fact, Michael Porter sees this as a very powerful source. Now, Tesla is now beginning to make a great deal of noise in the world of competition.
