  16. 16. Business Description MAIN INDUSTRY New Technology Development 6 SUB INDUSTRIES: Health Care Industrial and Transportation Display and Graphics Consumer and Office Electro and Communications Safety, Security, and Protection services
  17. 17. Threat of New Entrants Main Industry LOW As the Capital investment is very high most of the new entrants can’t afford such large amounts. Sub Industries HIGH As these industries are segmented industries other industries which are focused as well as well equipped firms will have a significant probability of entering the market which makes the intensity at high level for example a retailer may sell the product at relatively low price than 3M
  18. 18. Power of Buyers Main Industry LOW Sub Industries LOW As 3M produces innovative products the customers are ready to pay premium prices which makes the power of buyers low in both industrial cases.
  19. 19. Power of Suppliers Main Industry LOW As 3M provides a huge investment on R&D and also has a large possibility of buying raw materials from various suppliers the power of the suppliers here is low Sub Industries LOW As these industries are segmented industries it has various inlets from the suppliers which makes the power of suppliers here low
  20. 20. Threat of Substitutes Main Industry LOW Competition based on new product development As 3M has the best innovation and provides expenses in R&D and there are few who do that at large scale the threat is low Sub Industries HIGH Competition based on Commercialization As sub industries are segmented industries the local level retailers have a edge over the 3M as they can provide more focused products that satisfy customer needs so the threat of substitutes is high at the low level.

  44. 44. Cost leadership strategy Another common business level strategy that the 3M Company is using is relative cost leadership not an absolute one. It could be asked as a controversial question why 3M has no absolute cost leadership with this big size and global presence. The answer is because the Company has a diversified business in at least six different areas and to be a cost leader in all of those markets is a big deal therefore, 3M has relatively low cost in any of the businesses .
  45. 45. Differentiation Strategy Being the top most innovators in the world.. They follow some of the innovative strategies : Rule of 15% : “At 3M we live by our wits”. Rule in R&D , to spend 15% of lab time in research of your choice. Increases innovation speed. 25/5 rule : financial strategic decision. 25% of the company profits should come from products that are 5 years old.
  46. 46. 30/4 rule : 25/5 rule revised. Now 30% of the profits should come from products 4 years old. Done to increase innovation at faster speed. 7 percent rule : from every 1 dollar sales, 7% will be spent on R&D . Which gives 28% more sales due to large spending on R&D.

  49. 49. Strategic Groups 3M being the leader in almost every industry, has some of the major competitors :
  50. 50. Mature Industry •3M is definitely in the Mature phase of industry life cycle.

  51. 51. Deter entry to rivals Product proliferation : being in almost every sector of the world like automation, electronics, healthcare, finance etc. It has filled all the niches available to it by launching diverse products in every area. Maintain Excess capacity : To survive in industry, they need to produce in bulk. So they produce their products in bulk so as to prevent rivals to get a place in the industry.
  52. 52. Non- Price Strategies Product Development: involves creation of new products to existing markets. For eg: taking adhesives in manufacturing industry it started with masking tapes, spray adhesives, sealants and many other products. Market Development : as an example focusing on adhesives in manufacturing industry, they diversified their products to sticky notes, glues which could be used by students and general public
  53. 53. Corporate Level Strategies Corporate level strategy concerns how a diversified company intends to establish business position in different industries and the actions and approaches employed to improve the performance of the group of businesses of the company
  54. 54. Decisions at Corporate level
  55. 55. Cross Business Fit of 3M 3M was Initially only into abrasive and tape business. Slowly they started to make products from altogether different sector but the only common thing was all products needed innovation. The common thing innovation acted as the fit for their business. Thus, 3M kept on increasing products into their product portfolio which required innovation. To do this effectively they converted 3M into a diversified organization with 6 different divisions.
  56. 56. Size of diversification 3M didn’t diversify their business beyond certain limits. When they found that there were products which were not profitable, were not taken for research in their lab center. Thus they limited their diversification into 6 major business classes.
  57. 57. Unrelated Diversification of 3M The businesses in which 3M diversified were not related to each other in many ways but were common in certain aspects , i.e. all products made were made based on the needs of customers which were unmet and meeting those needs required innovation. 3M has 6 major businesses which are not related to each other. They have different departments to take care of each unit. The 6 businesses are further divided into more than 35 units which take care of different brands and product lines.
  58. 58. Geographic expansion 3M has vast a geographical expansion. It operates in more than 65 countries having 75,000 employees worldwide and 6,700researchers contributing to the R&D of the company with their innovations.
  59. 59. Strengthen Position in Existing Business By 3M 3M strengthens its existing businesses by continuous innovation under the same product line which either adds some new feature to the product or changing the product to an extent that it meets some other specific need. This decision is taken care of at the business level but the corporate policy is clear that there has been strengthening of the existing business.
  60. 60. Positioning in New Industry In 3M the decision of acquisition to enter a new industry is taken care at the business level and not at the corporate level. This is because of the reason that 3M believes that no one can understand their business better than the division itself. And thus they know what acquisition they should go for. The decision is strictly taken on the basis of whether 3M already owns the technology that the company they are going to acquire has. If the answer is no, they will go for the acquisition or else no
  61. 61. Diversification in weak and unattractive business This decision, at 3M, is again taken at the division level. If the technology in certain business is out dated and is of no use to 3M they will divest in that business and go for a new one. This strategy helps them to think only about the new things to bring in and not to ponder over a business not looking good in future
  62. 62. Global Level Strategies Of 3M
  63. 63. Localization Localization is The Key Strategy To Penetrate And Grow In International Markets 3M enters new international markets by exporting its products to that market. it focuses on localization of the supply chain by using locally sourced raw materials, to manufacture products in local plants and selling through local distribution channels. Identifying and developing products to cater to local requirements has also helped 3M increase its presence in global markets.
  64. 64. Efficiency By 3M Consolidated Supply Chains Help Increase Efficiency And Bring Down Costs 3M has deployed 'Supply Chain Centers of Excellence' globally to help consolidate and manage its supply chain with a regional focus rather than country by country. promote better management of manufacturing & engineering activities and the distribution channels in a more effective way. As a result, there are improvements in working capital requirements, overhead costs and tax rates. Switzerland, Singapore and Panama that cater to EMEA, Asia-Pacific and the Americas respectively. These centers have integrated and dedicated Enterprise Resource Planning solutions like SAP to maximize productivity and efficiency within the region.
  65. 65. 3M in developing and developed Markets 3M's Wide Range Enables It To Establish Presence In Developing And Developed Markets 3M has a wide range of products that can cater to every phase of a markets' economic growth. Developing countries are more focused on infrastructural growth and manufacturing operations, whereas developed countries purchase more consumer and healthcare goods. In 2012, developing markets contributed 39% to revenues in 3M's Industrial, Safety & Graphics, and Electronics & Energy Businesses, and 20% in the Consumer and Healthcare Businesses.
