This graphic identifies 5 attack strategies, though it doesn't actually go into a lot of detail on them or on how to defend against them (thus the title is a bit misleading).

Subject: Strategy/Frameworks

  1. Frontal: confronting dominant players head-on (more often price-based and often subsidized by the home market)
  2. Flanking: entering niche or geographical area where players are weak or not present
  3. Encirclement: encircling an opponent’s position (covering all nice areas with an array of product styles)
  4. By-pass: leap-frogging – choosing a different battleground
  5. Guerilla: attacking in small raids on competitor’s territory. Designed to sap strength and wrong-foot them.
