Aggressive image

Business strategies can be characterised in so many ways. One of the most common approaches is to estimate the nature of strategies based on their degree of aggressiveness. Aggressiveness strategies are measured according to their risk propensity, marketing assertiveness, and speed of decision making, financial leverage and production innovation. In most case the range of aggressiveness strategies is categorized into four groups: Reactor, defender, analyzer and prospector.


Prospector strategy

Prospective Strategy is the top aggressive of the four strategies. It usually involves active platforms to prompt new opportunities and increase into new market. New product development is effortlessly pursued and offensive marketing warfare strategies are typical way of acquiring more market share. They reply swiftly to any signs of market opportunity, and do with little analysis or research.

An enormous proportion of their revenue comes from new market or new products. They are often highly leveraged, sometimes with a substantial equity position held by venture capitalists. There is a high risk of market rejection and product failure. There market domain is regularly in flux as new opportunities arise and past product offering atrophy.

Been the first in an industry has always been their goals, thinking that they are first mover advantage will offer them with premium pricing opportunities and high margins. Skimming price is another common way of recapturing the cost of development. Thy can be opportunistic in headhunting key employees, both technical and managerial. Sales promotions, advertising , and personal selling costs are a high percentage of sales.

Typically the firm will be structured with each strategic business unit having substantial sovereignty. The business that they function in tends to be in the introduction or growth stage of its life cycle, with few entrants and evolving technology.



Defender strategy

Defender strategy involves a decision not to aggressively pursue markets. As a result, they choose not to do the things prospectors do. A defender strategy requires maintaining a secure and relatively stable market and finding. Instead of being on the cutting edge of technological innovation, market dynamics and product development. A defender always tries to cover themselves from changes whatever possible.


The Analyzer is in between the prospector and defender. They take less mistakes and less risk than the prospector, however, they are less committed to steadiness than defenders. 85% to 90% of firms are analyzers. Analyzer’s are rarely first movers into an industry, but they are regularly in a second or third place entrants.


A reactor has no strategy, often reacting to events as they occur. They only respond when they are forced to by macro environmental pressures. This is the least effective of the four strategies. It is without focus or guidelines
