Where Can I Find a List of Current Industry Profit Pools?
Rob Perhamus, Teacher, United States

Many people speak of profit pools, but where can I find them in the U.S. and internationally? Is there a list some place?
I would be especially interested in time dated snapshots by geographic location. For example, in many developed countries there was probably a time of growth and higher profit pools for building airports. Profit pools would decline in these locations, but grow in developing nations.

To find the profit pools you need to examine the value chain activities in your industry and then determine their size and profitability.
You can get more information in the summary or in the original article "How to Map your Industry Profit Pool" May-June 1998 HBR by Gadiesh and Gilbert.
