Dr Hamilton will discuss competitor analysis during a seminar titled The gap between strategic intent and core capability: a useful practitioner's guide to competitor analysis.

Competitors in an industry can be mapped according to their core capabilities and strategic intent. The matrix that results allows the strategist to decide who the most formidable competitors are. Dr Hamilton will illustrate the concepts through a graphic representation of players in the automobile industry over a ten-year timeframe, and also discuss:

Strategic intent
This sets the vision for the or
ganisation and communicates the rewards for achieving the goals associated with this vision. It inspires the organisation to allocate resources appropriately to reach desired outcomes, and typically requires the organisation to rethink its priorities.

Core capabilities
These are the firm's competencies, a set of differentiated skills, complementary assets and routines that provide the basis for a firm's sustainable competitive advantage.
