From the Paper:

"As any company in a highly competitive environment faces, Coca-Cola has faced many organizational problems. The biggest threat faced by this company is the entry of many new, strong competitors in the soft-drink and related beverages industry. For example, PepsiCo is one of Coca-Cola's toughest competitors that offer the same range of products at the same prices. This threat is significant because it cannot be eliminated just be producing a better quality product at a lower price."
