Hill’s Strategy Development Framework
Amazon and eBay are some of the contemporary society’s largest influencers of the online retail industry. They have for the past decade taken precedence as the model businesses that influence other investor’s decisions in investing within the online retail industry. However, in as much as the two companies compete within the same market, their influence and significance to the consumers vary on the basis of the strategies implemented by either one of them. The Hill’s Strategy Development Framework offers an ideal approach to comparing the two from a business perspective.
