Which one of Porter's competitive strategies fits with this strategy? I believe it is differentiation strategy. Do you agree and why?

Review the company's inputs and determine one or two specific critical inputs from each input category: environment, resources, and history. Are these aligned with the company's strategy and is there congruency?

I have attached the company's strategy, Porter's Five, etc. that I have completed so far.

Inputs Diagnosis: Time Warp 2

Using the Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model, conduct an analysis of Whole Foods Market's inputs and how they align with the strategy.

For the analysis, start with strategy. Review Whole Foods Market's strategy and then determine which one of Porter's competitive strategies fits with this strategy. Then review the company's inputs and determine one or two specific critical inputs from each input category: environment, resources, and history.

Ultimately, determine how aligned the critical inputs are with the strategy. Is there high congruence (alignment), some congruence, or little to no congruence? Support the claim with a good, logical argument using the information collected.

In order to make this case, first review the strategy and then classify it as one of Porter's competitive strategies. Then identify the Key Input factors in the first three categories. Explain why these are the critical input factors. Then determine how congruent the three input factors are with the strategy.
