No man is an island and, increasingly, no company or industry can .function profitably without some degree of intra-industry integration. Through a model based on companies competing in major segments of the air transportation industry, key relationships are identified among industry segments in a way that reconciles internal and external industry views. The model captures business processes, value chains, and interactions that generate end products in order to isolate strategic process issues and strategies to meet them.

Over the past 20 years, industries have expanded their boundaries by diversifying into new product areas, by creatively insourcing and outsourcing activities, and by entering into innovative cooperative agreements with companies from other industries. This expansion has almost blurred traditional industry boundaries by creating an economy of industries that are tightly interlinked.

As an industry's scope expands, activities are developed to coordinate cross-industry interactions. In many cases, an industry's integrative activities are more profitable than its traditional operations because of the critical nature of the functions provided and the power gained by coordinating these activities.

This paper introduces strategic reeingineering as a framework for understanding an industry in terms of its processes and value-added chains. This internal macro-process perspective on an industry's operations creates new strategic issues to address how industries and companies will operate as a set of integrated value chains.

In this paper, the strategic reengineering industry framework is applied to major product segments of the air transportation industry: airports, airlines, aircraft, maintenance, and components. A strategic reeingineering model is developed that identifies the interrelationships among the product…...

...Syracuse University INDUSTRY ANALYSIS OF COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN THE UNITED STATES Matthew Gerlitzki Strategic Management - MBC 645 Professor Wimer May 11, 2016 Industry Definition This is an industry analysis paper of the Colleges and Universities in the United States and it is important to begin with a definition. A goal of an industry definition and boundaries scope must not be too narrow or broadly defined because this will alter the scope of the analysis and result in a skewed conclusion. I will begin by differentiating between non-profits and for-profits businesses due to the different strategies involved within management in attempt to maintain the scope of this analysis. At first thought this seems irrelevant, however, the internal and external environments of these two types of business structures are different and management must prioritize accordingly. In academia, the for-profit institution must operate similar to a regular business with a focus on profitability that will satisfy stakeholders rather than focus primarily on the quality of education. The non-profit institution will focus primarily on education and student success, which will contribute to the brand awareness and prestige that will be discussed later. An analysis of the Colleges and Universities in the United States will be limited to non-profit private and public institutions that offer Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate degrees. Bachelor’s (undergraduate) degrees are......
