Ciaran Parker’s  – Porter the Numero Uno…

Not surprisingly Michael Porter was ranked ( in the year 2005) as the numero uno of the top 50. While MPs contribution to the Management world is undisputed, I was slightly hesitant to straight away nod my head in agreement. However the term “value chain” that he invented surfaced to my mind and his longevity ( circa 1980 onwards till  date) of influence made me dispel whatever little doubt in my mind.

Porter’s competitive strategy framework is a must understand to survive as a manager.
