Is CC REALLY Different from FF?
Tim, Australia
The trouble with this article and concept is that it begins by suggesting that CC is opposite to Porter's FF approach in that it places CC at the start as opposed to FF which places market, competition and customer first. Then you read down to the "Three test for identifying a Core Competence" and find market, competitor and customer.

Core Competence differences versus Five Forces
Kim Warren, Professor, United Kingdom
Of course CC is different from FF. FF is an industry-level framework for assessing profit opportunities generally, and says nothing about any particular firm at all. CC seeks deep competences that may allow a firm to perform strongly in its industry. No-one said you only need CC and can forget about the competitive environment. Like most strategy tools CC and FF are merely individual tools that may be necessary to identify a strong strategic position.

Core Competencies and Five Forces
Christine Nakimbugwe, Uganda
CC and FF are both tools that an organisation can use to sustain their presence in the environment.
It's the issue of sustainability that drives both tools to be considered.
Secondly, it is a contigency to the organisation.
CC has to do with resource auditing, FF has to do with environment scanning.
