Analysing the macro business system The basic building block for understanding any industry is the macro business system. It includes all industry participants, connected in a successive chain of value added, from raw material production to OEM customers, wholesalers, retailers, retail customers and in some cases recycling. As in macroeconomics, where macro denotes the behaviour of the economy as a whole, the term ‘macro business system’ applies to an entire industry and all players upstream and downstream from a given competitor.
We may refer to the process of anticipating the future as developing an industry vision. 14 Each business system stage is subject to these five forces. Their impact leads eventually to a new configuration, either by splitting, elimination or separation of stages as discussed above. Tracking drivers in the macro business system and understanding how each player group influences the other stages, the analyst must determine which stage acts as the power source (drives the other stages).
