Abstract: Although Gillette, in its 102-year corporate history, had been a dominant player in the razor and blade market, competition loomed in the form of Schick's 'Quattro' in late 2003.

The Quattro, with its superior technology was a direct attack on the most successful razor line of Gillette the Mach3. Though Gillette, with its research and development muscle, could quickly improvise Mach3, to a battery powered M3Power, much was still to be seen as to whether Gillette's move could help it to retain the coveted position in the razor and blade market.

Pedagogical Objectives:
