Most of the strategies adopted by mobile phone companies do not deliver the promised outcomes and this has intensified the competition and subsequently impacted on their performance.

The study aimed to analyze the influences of strategic positioning on performance in the mobile telecommunication industry in Kenya. Specifically, the study sought to determine the influences of defender, prospector, analyzer and reactor typologies on performance in the mobile telecommunication industry in Kenya. The study was premised on miles and snow typology while applying a combination of explanatory design, descriptive survey research design and cross sectional design.
