One traditional approach to assessing the influence of a company's industry on its ability to succeed is Michael Porter's framework for analyzing industries and competitors. Porter, a professor at Harvard Business School, created his model to help companies build a business strategy that responds to five competitive forces. Lenders use Porter's model to identify an industry's most significant competitive challenges.
