Business Studies Year 13 revision Day 6 - Porter's Five Forces Model

On day 6 of the Year 13 Recap we look at Porter’s Five Forces Model.

However, you do need to be able to evaluate this model and state why the results of this model only act as guidance for a firm and does not determine a strategy for a firm.
