By applying cost leadership in certain segments, we will be able to provide the lowest cost at competitive levels of quality that create value for customers. 2. Strategy Ferris will apply a broad differentiation with integrated cost leadership strategy. We will compete in all product segments while applying cost leadership to certain segments and differentiation to others.
