In order to understand the functionality of Competing Value Model Framework, you should be aware of internal-external dimension and stability-flexibility dimension.

On the other hand, it will also have an external orientation, where they conduct market research, figure out what the competitors are doing, figuring out the latest technologies and understanding what customer requirements are.

It is important to ensure both internal and external attention to ensure success in the long run. However, an agile market will create an external orientation. On the other hand, a stable environment can result in internal focus. In here, the competing nature of the values and the way how you pick inside or outside can be done at the same time.
