CHAIRMANS REVIEW

In Year 2010 the demand for automobile was sluggish .The industry for cars and light commercial vehicles experienced 29% decline in the sales volume. The industry sold 107,768 units during the year against 151,517 units last year. Its my pleasure to present review on the performance of the company for the year December 31, 2010 The demand has depressed during the year due to cost push inflation resulting from depreciation of Pak rupee, limited financing by banks/leasing companies and general economic recession. First half of the year was the worst. Sales volume during this period has dropped by 53% compared to last period of last year. Second half was somewhat better than first half year. As it was grew by 33% over the first half year. The market size of motorcycle has marginal improved by 2% over the last year in the organized sector. During the year 593,479 units were sold against 580,604 units last year. During the first half year Demand was 25% lower than same period of last year. However this loss of demand was offset by the increased demand latter half year.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This project is about the strategic Analysis of Pak Suzuki Motor Company. During the project, we had done the detailed study of Pak Suzuki Motor Company Limited like their company profile, mission, vision and corporate values. Then we observe the some of the major products manufactured and assembled by the Pak Suzuki Motor Company limited which include SWIFT, LIANA, CULTUS, MEHRAN, APV etc With the help of Internal and External analysis, we sorted out some of their strengths, weaknesses and the opportunities and threats prevailing in the market. Also the Environmental analysis was conducted to observe the internal, external factors that may influence the performance of the company. The BCG matrix helped us to study the important products of the company; we did identify in which stage the products are and tried to do the SBU analysis for each product. With the study of Pak Suzuki Motor Company Limited, we learned that they are doing well in the Pakistani market and are leading market shareholder. They are producing Cars at affordable prices for the low income to middle income people. But they are unable to compete with Corolla and Honda in Luxury and semi-luxury cars. They need product development strategy to follow. So, they tried to get into the Honda and Corolla market by introducing Suzuki LIANA but that couldnt make its space. Now they have again tried that by launching Suzuki SWIFT which is a 1300cc fully loaded car. we recommend Product Development strategy for PSMC (Pak Suzuki motor company) to pursue in order to compete with HONDA and TOYOTA. Then they will be able to grow their market share and growth.

To be the market leader and satisfy the requirements of its customers, the company has set certain objectives. These are:

1. 2. 3. 4.

Improve Quality Enhance Efficiency Minimize Cost Increase Productivity

Over the previous years, the company has put in its best efforts to manufacture quality cars designed for its customers. To improve their efficiency, the company gives great importance to its human resource as the company believes that satisfied and quality conscious team can produced quality products.

Corporate objective: Provide high quality reliable and comfortable cars. Financial objective: Suzukis financial objectives are to make money. Marketing objective: Main objective is world domination, with regard to supplying cars.

P a g e | 12

Long term objectives:

. To makes a profit - entrepreneurs risk their capital in a business and profit is their
reward for risk-taking. If a business is to grow it needs to make a profit. Some of the profit could be used to buy new equipment, staff or premises.

. To increase market share - If a firm is able to increase its market share, it shows that
it is winning customers from its competitors; so many businesses have increasing market share as one of their key aims.

. To provide services to costumers - most businesses provide a service to customers


and therefore, they need to provide services to customers in order to make a profit.

. To improve the quality of the product or service - In most markets, customers have a choice about the product or service that they use. If the quality of a product is not as good as that of its competitors it is likely to lose market share.
Corporate culture: Corporate culture is the collective behavior of people using Common corporate vision, goals, shared values, beliefs, Habits, working language, systems, and symbols. It is interwoven with processes, technologies, learning and significant events. In addition, different individuals bring to the workplace their own uniqueness, knowledge, and ethnic Culture.

STRATEGIC POSITION

Current Situation Analysis ofMicro-Environment And Macro-Environment

P a g e | 14

MACRO ENVIRONMENT

Macro Environment

The larger societal forces that affect the micro environment are: demographic, economic, natural, technological, political, and cultural forces. These factors represent constraints within which all organizations including the automobile industry m ust function. The various components of macro environment are: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Economic Cultural Political Technological Demographics Natural

Economic Condition

Pakistan, an impoverished and underdeveloped country, has suffered from decades of internal political disputes and external ongoing conflict with India. However, IMF approved the government policies, encourages by different foreign assistance and renewed access to global market since 2001.By following these policies government succeed to reverse the situation of economy during last five years.

Social and Culture Forces

Pakistan has strong culture background and it has been follow in some particular region of Pakistan strictly. But with the passage of time it is going to change. Thoughts of people, choices, taste and style has been totally changed. If we talk about the transportation source in Pakistan, People use buses, pickups etc for journey. They also have their own as well e.g. cycles; bikes, cars etc and lots of people are pedestrian. But now the people who havent any source of transportation they also want something for their convenience because they wants to save their time as much as they can. People want to use such vehicle which looks beautiful and also affordable.

P a g e | 15

Political and legal forces

Pakistan has to face lots of ups and down since its independence. So many governments have been broken down by military authority and most of the time marsh law applied on Pakistan. In this scenario no entrepreneur was willing to invest in Pakistan except few. Due to this market environment wasnt so good in Pakistan. Anyhow, Pakistani government never had been trustworthy for any investor. As all countries, Pakistan also has some legislation about each sector. But like developing countries it is hardly being imposed by authorities. Only due to corruption government encourage smuggling and black marketing. When anyone supported by government or give more commission to Govt. get inside in the market and they have very soft behavior by government for any legal action. Such unethical activities destroy all law and legislation.
Technology

Technological factor also very important and we havent control on it. Technology is grooming with the passage of time. People also want that the product that they have is full of technology. We never control on technology for example you launched the product last year and your sale volume on that time is very high but after sometime due to latest invention a lots of substitute exist in market which affect on your business so you cant hold on it.
Demographics Society holds a global or summary belief that an organization is proper and worthy of support. Suzuki takes pride in being the most trusted name all over Pakistan. Its vehicles are regarded as a status symbol. It is the guiding principles of Suzuki which has strongly developed trust in the people. Natural Factor Involves the natural resources that are needed as inputs by marketers or that are affected by marketing activities. Trends Shortages of raw materials. Increased pollution. Increased government intervention.

MICRO ENVIRONMENT

Micro Environment

The Micro environment consists of those components of the macro environment which are directly relevant to an individuals organization. An organizations micro environment includes: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Customers Suppliers Internal Public Competitors Intermediaries The company

The boundary between an organizations Macro and Micro environment should not be viewed as static. Changes in the former will inevitably redefine the latter. The various components of micro environment for PAK Suzuki motors have direct influence on its performance. Moreover components of Suzukis micro environment are also related to its macro environment.

1.

CUSTOMERS Suzuki aims at developing loyal customers relationship. For this reappoint tries its best to understand who its buyers are and what their needs are. It tries to listen to its customers, realizing that they may be their best collaborators. Customers feedbacks drive their product development.

To be the market leader and satisfy the requirements of its customers, the company has set certain objectives. These are: a) b) c) d) Improve Quality Enhance Efficiency Minimize Cost Increase Productivity

Over the previous years the company has put in its best efforts to manufacture quality cars designed for its customers. In Pakistan, more and more people want to experience the

P a g e | 17 unique pleasure of motoring. Exhaustive, in-depth research and consumer surveys conducted over the past years revealed trends of customers and the environmental factors relating to use.
Suzuki Marketing Policy

This spread of network shows not how Suzuki is sincerely busy in developing a companys customer relationship and winning the hearts of brand loyal as well as attracting potential customers.

P a g e | 18

2.

SUPPLIERS

Suppliers constitute a second component in a typical organizations micro environment. Suzuki has to respond not only to the customers they supply, but also to the sources from which they receive supplies. Suppliers are given importance and respect by Suzuki. It continuously aims at developing a strong relationship with its suppliers. This is done to ensure that Suzuki suppliers provide a quality material which is the most important factor for Suzuki vehicles.

Japan, is the major supplier of CBU or completely built up vehicles. Also CKD kits or completely Knocked down Kits are supplied from Japan. CKD kits mainly comprise of the engine of vehicles. The vehicles which are assembled in Pakistan comprise of 65% locally manufactured parts.

Pak Suzuki aims for good relations with both the local and foreign suppliers. To

provide automobile of international quality at competitive price is Suzuki mission.


This can be proved by the fact that dealership is authorized to those selective people who offer 3 Ss. That is sales, services, spare parts. This is done to ensure convenience for its customers. They are offering the following services to cater to the needs of their customers: a) b) c) d) e) One year free servicing from any Suzuki service center all over Pakistan. Free checkup camps are set annually. Spare parts easily available all over Pakistan. The dealership network comprises of seventeen dealerships all offering sales, services and spares. The customer retention department at the dealerships is also improved and consolidated periodically.

The company believes on the fact that favorable supplier relations lead to improve quality, better shipping arrangements early warming of major price changes and advance information about technological or marketplace developments. So, the aim is to develop friendly, professional relations with suppliers in which both will profit.

P a g e | 19

3.

Internal Public It is the action, of employees by which a companys objectives are accomplished. In order to achieve its goals and objectives Suzuki makes sure that highly competent and skilled people are employed. Emphases is laid to ensure that the person being hired meet the criterion for the respective departments.

Training is an integral part in Suzuki various departments. Training was intensified and various courses were conducted through the previous year. Technicians at the dealers service departments underwent extensive by PSMC service departments to improve their skills. Moreover, periodic training of managers is also conducted. This includes training camps, short courses, training programs conducted by experts.

4.

COMPETITORS

Market competition is the cornerstone of managerial capitalism. The five forces that shape the degree of market competition operating within an organizations micro environment are: a) b) c) d) e) Rivalry among existing organization. Relative power of customers. Relative power of suppliers. Threat of new entrants. Threat of new substitutes.

Presently Suzuki is proud to have the most market share. Toyota stands second followed by Honda and Nissan. Since its start it was only in 95-96 that Toyota managed to sale 200 more units of vehicles than Suzuki. Still, Suzuki is proud to be in a strong position. However to the spirit of competition is strong and this has lead Suzuki to continuously try to improve itself, at all levels. Continuous emphasis is laid on to attract more customers, maintains healthy relations with its suppliers and makes efforts to improve technology. Careful strategic planning at all levels has enabled Suzuki to achieve the highest market share and have an edge over other automobile companies.

P a g e | 20 5. INTERMEIARIES

Banks, Leasing companies and car agents are some of the intermediaries for Suzuki. These intermediaries basically giving the boost to the sales of Suzuki, by offering the cars to the consumers, in easy installments and making the cars affordable for the customers to the higher extent. 6. THE COMPANY

Marketing must consider other parts of the organization including finance, R&D, purchasing, operations and accounting. Marketing decisions must relate to broader company goals and strategies.

SCENARIO BUILDING In terms of the environmental factors, the main issues the whole of the car industry is emissions. Suzuki are exploring more new technology that does not include this as they have an insight into the way that their businesses will be affected by this is the future. For example, the greenhouse effect which warms the climate. Therefore leading to an increase in temperature, which in turn causes serious consequences for the environment. Suzuki invested in R&D reducing emission, by producing cars that use fuel cell technology, methane gas, heat and power systems, natural gas and community heating.

INDUSTRY ANALYSIS The importance of industry analysis is now dawning on the Pakistan investor as never before. It is very important to analyze the health of an industry because no company is operating in isolation. Analysis of an industry can be performed using the tools like:

INDUSTRY LIFE CYCLE The first step in industry is to determine the cycle it is in, or the stage of maturity of the industry. All industries evolve through the following stages: 1. Introduction 2. Growth 3. Maturity 4. Decline

P a g e | 21

PORTERS FIVE FORCES MODEL There are competitive forces and it is these competitive forces that determine the extent of the inflow of funds, the return on investment and the ability of companies to sustain these returns. Porter has identified five competitive forces that shape every industry and every market. The five forces identified by Porter are: 1. Threat of new entrants 2. Threat of substitutes 3. Baggaining power of the customers 4. Bargaining power of the suppliers 5. Rivalry among competitors

P a g e | 22

Porters 5 Force
The strategic business manager seeking to develop an edge over rival firms can use this model to better understand the industry context in which the firm operates. Here are the Porters 5 forces. Potential new entrants Bargaining power of buyers Bargaining power of suppliers. Threat of substitutes. Industry Competition/rivalry between competitors. 1. Potential new entrants In Pak Suzuki this can be described as In the New Entrant category of Porter's 5 forces, we can see that it would be tremendously difficult for another car manufacturer to enter into the market. The rate at which the industry is changing does not allow for new entrants to come into the market very easily, and the cash investment for a new firm to produce massive quantities of cars is in the billions. 2. Bargaining power of buyers Buyers, from the strong competition inside of the market find themselves in a very favorable position. Since competition is so strong between auto makers and dealers, consumers will often do research on a vehicle before making a purchase. The high quantity of dealers forces prices to be very negotiable and the consumer often knows exactly what the dealer paid for the car. Thus, consumers are in an enviable position: The market supply is strong, competition between auto makers and auto sellers is very intense, and there is no set price. Everything is negotiable. For companies like Pak Suzuki to continue to compete, the quality of their offerings must be

P a g e | 23

excellent, dealership service must be strong, and they must focus on offering consumers a product with high durability and value.

3. Bargaining power of suppliers. Pak Suzukis suppliers have been known to be some of the most dedicated suppliers in the industry.

By virtue of the Just-In-Time production concept pioneered by Pak Suzuki, the auto industry itself has seen a very positive relationship develop between its suppliers and producers. Suppliers are expected to make deliveries of parts in small quantities several times a day. Pak Suzuki, by reducing its part inventory, has been able to speed up production costs, save money by not letting parts sit on the shelf, and improve its relationship with parts suppliers, which rely on Pak Suzuki for their revenue.

4. Threat of substitutes Consumer preference is changing (Mini cars are being replaced by compact or midsized cars)

Setting up integrated manufacturing facilities may require higher capital investments than establishing assembly facilities Pakistan is also likely to increasingly serve as the sourcing base for global automotive companies, and automotive exports are likely to gain increasing importance over the medium term Pakistan passenger car market is moving towards cars of higher capacity.

5. Industry Competition/rivalry between competitors Industry competition between auto makers is fierce. The typical consumer, when searching for a particular vehicle is bombarded by choices.

P a g e | 24

For example, a search for ALTO (Product of Suzuki) yields a result of Coure (Daihatsu) with a minimal extra amount.

COMPETITORS AND MARKET

Market competition is the cornerstone of managerial capitalism. The five forces that shape the degree of market competition operating within an organizations micro environment are: f) g) h) i) j) Rivalry among existing organization. Relative power of customers. Relative power of suppliers. Threat of new entrants. Threat of new substitutes.

Presently Suzuki is proud to have the most market share. Toyota stands second followed by Honda and Nissan. Since its start it was only in 95-96 that Toyota managed to sale 200 more units of vehicles than Suzuki. Still, Suzuki is proud to be in a strong position.

Continuous emphasis is laid on to attract more customers, maintains healthy relations with its suppliers and makes efforts to improve technology. Careful strategic planning at all levels has enabled Suzuki to achieve the highest market share and have an edge over other automobile companies.

P a g e | 30 Proposed Strategies

Business Strategies
Business strategies planning are to be conducted in order to know about their various businesses how each business performing. With the help these strategies I come to know which business require investment and in the similar manner which require promotional activities. They can use the same promotional activities and with the help of synergy, their different department (R&D, Marketing, Sales etc) can be shared in different business. By utilizing the synergy efficiently they can reduce cost of product. And this strategy will help managers to identify that which SBU is falls in which categories, for that there is an analysis known as BCG Matrix Analysis which gives the detail information to the managers to carry which SBU, and how many resources should a company allocate to which Unit. In Pak Suzuki the main SBUs are 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) Swift Liana Cultus Alto Mehran Ravi Bolan Jimny

After analysis from different data I came across the BCG analysis and draw the following conclusion:
1. Maximize market share by producing more cars per year. 2. Develop more efficient and innovative engines which give comparative advantage. 3. Use efficient CNG system. 4. Focus on looks and design of exterior to compete with Honda and Toyota. 5. Fund and establish technical institutes to gain more skilled workforce from local market. 6. Maintain quality in affordable price will help to compete with direct competitors and used imported cars. 7. Develop fuel efficient engines to gain edge and eliminate threat of fuel prices increase. 8. Enhance distribution to avoid threat from second hand imported cars.

EXTERNAL & INTERNAL ANALYSIS


In formulating sound strategic plans, an organization must assess it s internal strengths and weaknesses in relation to the external opportunities and threats it faces. An effective strategy will take advantage of an organizations strengths and opportunities at the same time it minimizes or overcomes weaknesses and threats. Regular assessment and SWOT analysis is thus given importance.

P a g e | 33 SWOT Analysis

Strengths: Highest Market Share Low Price Vehicles Resale of Local Assembled Cars Large Distribution Channels Rising per capita income with changing demographic distribution Highly Innovative and deep product line Highly maintained supply chain Well Managed and highly competitive staff Well defined and bureaucratic organizational structure Complete understanding between Distributors Easy availability of spare parts Weakness: Scarcity of raw material Lack of coordination and linkage with Government/semi government supporting bodies Less focus on Looks and Design Less Technical Training Institutes Less distribution channels in sub urban areas Opportunities: Increasing Demand for Cars Efficient EFI engines Large Market size to operate Global spare part market Space saving Small size CNG cylinders

Threats: Tough Competitors like Toyota and Honda Foreign Investment and setup production facilities Smuggling of Auto Parts Inflation rate Heavy Taxes Competition from cheaper imported cars Increase in Fuel Prices

SBUs Analysis MEHRAN: MEHRAN has the highest growth rate in automobile sector in Pakistan. Pak Suzuki always changes the different parts of MEHRAN either exterior or interior whenever it comes to its maturity level. MEHRAN is attractive the people who have salaries within 20,000 to 30,000 per month. The youngsters also prefer the MEHRAN because of its size and economical price. Small business people also prefer MEHRAN because of its low maintenance cost. MEHRAN also attracts people who move from bike to the cars.

LIANA: Liana is a luxurious and highest price car of Pak Suzuki. It was built to compete with Pak Suzukis biggest competitors like Toyota and Honda. Liana has the same features which are available in Corolla and Civic but still it couldnt make its market as compare to both these cars. Liana has replaced the Pak Suzukis BALENO in 2005-06, since Pak Suzuki tried several ways to establish its position but failed to do so. It was made for a people of high income group but due to high prices in which the market was already giving names like corolla and civic who has their strong brand name and customer loyalty, liana was failed to capture the market.

P a g e | 35

SWIFT: Due to failure of Liana Pak Suzuki introduced another 1300cc car in Jan 2009. Swift has all the latest features like power steering, central locking, Auto Transmission and the ABS. All the 1300cc cars in Pakistan have price range of 1300000 to 1400000, while Swift was introduced at 999000 and recently it was increased at 1049000. It has still advantage of price competition as compare to other 1300cc cars in Pakistan.

RAVI: Ravi is for the people doing small business especially cargo services like home delivery services, TCS and market delivery. All people doing business of these types are loyal customers to Ravi. Although the SHEHZORE has captured some of its market share but still Ravi is much famous and market leader in its type. EXPECTATIONS AND PURPOSE

CAPABILITIES Foundations of Capabilities

Threshold Competences Suzuki seeks to meet customers requirements such as AC, trip computer, electric seats etc. Suzuki is one step ahead and is looking to provide customers with services that other companies dont for example key reader which checks the chassis number, mileage of the vehicle, the next due date for service and introducing the hydrogen fuel because it meets its customers requirements in terms of power, dynamic performance, costs and sophistication.

P a g e | 37 Threshold Capabilities Suzuki is serving with threshold capabilities in order to dominate the market and be the best. They provide services such as different brands (APV, LIANA, CULTUS etc), future Hydrogen Fuel to reduce pollution, increase car performance and reliability and Key reader. Core competences At present, Suzuki core competences is by having specific models that cannot be imitated by other competitors such as the mehran as well as the cultus and alto vxr. Suzuki started redesigning the Mini, giving it a performance engine to gain competitive advantage in the market and to meet their reliability factor of their mission statement. Sustaining Competitive Advantage The strategic capabilities have been mentioned as an important factor for Suzuki; for instance if Suzuki does not meet customers needs then their organization would not survive. The aim of Suzuki is to achieve competitive advantage as well as sustaining the competitive advantage, which can be met through strategic capabilities but factors within the strategic capabilities also have to be taken into consideration, which are as follows:

Value of Strategic capabilities this is where organizations understand what customers value. Suzuki values their customers by giving the range of choices to choose from. Suzuki is the only automobile company that offers 9 different brands; swift, cultus and apv exclusively on the premium segments of the automobile markets. This gives Suzuki a competitive advantage as their customers have a wide range of brands to choose from. No other auto mobility company entails different brands within the company so therefore Suzuki does have the competitive edge in the market. Rarity of Strategic Capabilities this means having a rare strategic capability; that is rarely used by competitors to get the edge on the competitive advantage. In relation to Suzuki their rarity of strategic capability is to insure their customers retrieve the best reliable automobile and also fuel consumption. Robustness of Strategic Capabilities a capability which cannot be imitated by any other competitors. The Suzuki groups are unique car manufacturers due to the fact that they are the only company to provide their customers with the Mini range. Another capability would be Suzuki are looking into invest on a long term bright future which lacks on pollution, this is the hydrogen. The hydrogen fuel has been tested on the 6th generation Suzuki and is in the process of installing for the remaining series. By 2011 Suzuki aims to hand over the vehicles to customers for them to test and optimize the concept of hydrogen in the daily life.

Three generic competitive strategies:


Each of the generic strategies involves different route and target to competitive advantage, The cost leadership and differentiation strategies seek competitive advantage in a broad range of industry segments, while focus strategies aim at cost advantage (cost focus) or differentiation (differentiation focus) in a narrow segment. (Porter, 1985)

Cost leadership: Cost leadership is the clearest of the three generic strategies. In this strategy, firm should try their best to reduce the cost. If a firm can achieve and sustain overall cost leadership, then it will be an above-average performer in its industry provided it can command prices at or near the industry average. At equivalent or lower prices than its rivals, a cost leader low-cost position translates in to higher returns. A cost leader, however, cannot ignore the bases of differentiation. If its product is not perceived as comparable of acceptable by buyers, a cost leader will be forced to discount prices well below competitors to gain sales. This may nullify the benefits of its favorable cost position. (Porter, 1985) If customers think the product is not good as the product of competitor; the firm has to reduce the price. The firm can get high profitability until a cost leader gets the cost leadership parity in the bases of differentiation.

P a g e | 39 Differentiation: The second generic strategy is differentiation. In a differentiation strategy, a firm seeks to be unique in its industry along some dimensions that are widely valued by buyers. It selects one or more attributes that many buyers in an industry perceive as important, and uniquely positions it to meet those needs. It is rewarded for its uniqueness with a premium price. The means for differentiation is peculiar to each industry. Differentiation is based on the product itself, the delivery system by which it is sold, the marketing approach, and a broad range of other factors. (Porter, 1985)

If the extra cost for differentiation is less than the premiums price, the firm which has the competitive advantage of differentiation can get better profitability than other firms in the industry. Because the extra cost for differentiation is the disadvantage of the differentiation, the firm cannot ignore the cost position. So, only based on the price is almost the same as competitor, the differentiator could get the high profitability.

Focus: The third generic strategy is focus. This strategy is quite different from the others because it rests on the choice of a narrow competitive scope within an industry. The focuser selects a segment or group of segment in the industry and tailors its strategy to serving them to the exclusion of others. By optimizing its strategy for the target segments, the focuser seeks to achieve a competitive advantage in its target segments even though it does not possess a competitive advantage overall. The focus strategy has two variants. In cost focus a firm seeks a cost advantage in its target segment, while in differentiation focus a firm seeks differentiation in its target segment. (Porter, 1985) The firm can focus the time, the resource and the money on the segment to get the competitive advantage. If the firm can get the competitive advantage of cost leadership or differentiation in its target segment, the firm could provide customer the better service and meet the special requirement. Because of the different requirements of customer, there are always many segments in one industry.

Suzuki Hybrid Strategy Suzuki customer expectations of service levels are low allowing for cost reductions as customers are prepared to transport and build their products A unique cost structure flat pack gives Suzuki as low cost distribution channel A global retail giant such as Suzuki can achieve greater volumes than competitors so margins may be better because of its lower cost base This allows Suzuki to sustain a low cost high quality advantage.

Porters five forces can be related to the diagram below.

Increased selling power

P a g e | 44 Shared work with customers Suzuki has gone into E-commerce that allows customers to purchase online. The Suzuki website is designed so that customers can order furniture online as they are able to give customers self-service and allows them to customize their own design with specific style and colors. Customers are able to purchase products or services from other countries e.g. as financial services are not offered to all the countries that Suzuki operate in, they could trade online to buy these services from the UK, US, Asia pacific, North America etc.

THE CULTURAL WEB

Strategic fit among activities is fundamental not only to competitive advantage but also to the sustainability of that advantage. The culture of Suzuki is to enthusiastically work for constantly renewing the products, on cost consciousness, focusing on quality, to assume responsibility and to help in tasks and brining simplicity in the behaviors. To achieve this culture, Suzuki has integrated all the activities to achieve the simple consistency between them, the optimum efforts could be reached by reinforcing the activities. There was an increasing demand for the inexpensive furniture, while the prices were high; this was a social problem yet a rising opportunity for the business. To place itself in the industry it focused on activities like layout of warehouses, relationships with suppliers, meeting demands of young buyers, providing a wide product range, appreciating the creative solutions, paying attention to retails, a smooth leadership style that will be passed to the generations developing leaders in the company and moreover their management style that is the key to every activity.

DIRECTIONS AND METHODS OF DEVELOPMENT In the present business environment, no firm can consider itself immune to threats of product obsolesces and saturation of demand. As a minimum, firms in all industries need to make regular periodic reviews of product-market strategy. It has been one of the two most significant authors of strategic management knowledge who firstly developed a framework which is now broadly used for decisions related to business development options.

Figure 3.1 Product-market growth matrixes

This matrix has been revised and further elaborated on by other authors from the time it has been published. Probably the most extensive and complex discussion is provided by Johnson and Scholes37 whose elaboration will be used for further discussions related to this matrix.

P a g e | 46

Product-market growth strategies Based on the introductive discussions related to the product-market growth matrix, there are 4 main directions in which companies could develop. They could protect and build positions of their current products or services on current markets, enter new markets with current products, develop new products and offer them on current markets or both activities together, i.e. enter new markets with new products.

Business development options on current markets with current Products or services The first option available to organizations wishing to develop and improve their competitiveness is to gain further market share, in other words penetrate the market further. However, the extent to which such option could be easily followed depends on several factors. Most importantly, it is the nature and state of the market. It is much easier to gain further market share on growing markets than on static markets where the demand is already met by current providers. In addition, companies wishing to gain further market share need to have additional resources for such developments and this can provide barriers mainly to smaller companies.

STRATEGIC RECOMMENDATIONS

Real Strategic change requires inventing new categories, not rearranging old ones. Said, Henry Mintzberg
Product Development is the selected strategy at this point of time for Pak Suzuki Motor Company Limited that I observed from my strategic analysis of the PSMC. In product development strategy I recommend the company to focuses on having the highest level of product performance, the highest level of functionality or functions and features, the latest technology or the highest level of product innovation. This strategy might have some risk for the company as innovative products are involved but proper research and development will cater the risk and company can pursue with the strategy to be the market leaders and get on top. One major setback to PSMC was in the shape of Suzuki LIANA, which was not able to meet the expectations and couldnt hold the market it was made for. But company didnt stop its journey there, and now Suzuki SWIFT has recently been launched in the market, which seems to be an attractive offer for the market in the 1300cc class. But still company has nothing to compete with HONDA and TOYOTA. The Suzuki needs to enter into the 1600cc and 1800cc market to expand its market share and market growth. But for that purpose they need to put more efforts of product development as the new product must have all the required features and technology that is needed to compete with giant

P a g e | 51 competitors. And of course, PSMC has competitive advantage in local assembling and manufacturing of parts and they can utilize that advantage to produce cheaper cars in the categories mentioned above.

The PSMC has recently received acknowledgement from Prime Minister of Pakistan for being the only car manufacturers for the lower and middle income people of Pakistan. But they should also need to get into the line of HONDA and TOYOTA, to achieve that target they need to develop more technologically cheap and efficient and quality oriented products. World trade organization (WTO) has rejected their program of deletion. I suggest they must start an alternative program for extension of their growth. So that their market growth and market share do not declined. To reduce their input cost they must use other methods for producing resources so that they can lower their cost of production. They must make trust with government so that government give them security and protection. They must train their workers to use innovations and new technology as workforce is backbone of the company. I recommended them that they must increase their production and give more beautiful and heart touching look to the car with good system and service.

CONCLUSION
The Pak Suzuki Motor Company Limited has strong competitive position against its major competitors and the market growth is healthy and at increasing pace. By comparing both Market Development and Product Development, they obtained more weighted attractive score for Product development. That means company should follow the product development which is part of aggressive strategies. This strategy is going to help the firm in eliminating its threats and grab the opportunities to be successful in the present macro environment.
