Executive summary:


External analysis:

During the external analysis phase we tried to cover all the factors that would affect burger king so we worked on getting these factors from two sources:

1) Internet searching to gather all the factors that affect the market as a whole.

2) Contacting managers working in burger king

After we got these factors we used three tools to see the assessment of external environment on our company.

The three tools:

• Forces Driving Industry Competition:

We concluded from this tool

➢ That threat of new entry in this highly competitor market is not much big if this competitor wasn’t w well known brand, but if he was mega brand the threat would be high.

➢ The supplier power is big in our industry, so for us to decrease this power we put more than one alternative supply for our inputs as we can, to decrease the number of unique suppliers and their strength on manipulating our supply chain.

➢ The buyer power in our industry is not so big because of the different buyer’s categories we serve.

➢ The rivalry in our industry is big as all the competitors do their best to attract more customers to their company.

• External factor Evaluation Matrix:

Through this tool we took all the threats and opportunities and the affect of each of them on our company and our score was 3.358 which means that we know how to overcome the threats and make use of opportunities
