Internet Usage and Competitive Strategy: A Large Firm Study
Foley, Patrick and Samson, Danny (2003) Internet Usage and Competitive Strategy: A Large Firm Study. Working Paper. Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.
Using 281 of Australian's top 1000 companies this study examined the effect a firm's strategy had on the adoption of internet-enabled business practices (IBP). Four strategies were explored Product Leadership, Operational Excellence, Customer Intimacy and Commodity Seller. Firms with a product leadership strategy were the most likely to adopt internet-enabled business practices (IBP) even when size, monopoly position and industry turbulence were controlled for. Different strategies had different adoption patterns with Commodity Seller having the lowest overall adoption rate.
