        According to Porter, there are two different competitive advantage for any organisation such

        . The researcher has also added that the company can gain a competitive advantage over the competitors by ensuring cost effectiveness means producing production with less cost or offering a wide range of products (Samli 1998). From this concept, three strategies are defined and described such as
