It's a well known fact that companies struggle with strategy execution. Over the past 10 years, 70% of the companies listed on the Fortune 1000 have vanished. Why? For most, the answer is simple. They became too slow or too incapable of adapting to uncertain and changing market conditions. How could this be? Well, this happened because many of these firms relied on tried and true business thinking from last millennium that revolved around intense strategic planning, building economies of scale, and dominating channel partners & distributors - in essence, creating a single sustainable competitive advantage. This left them without the strategic agility needed to navigate a rapidly shifting business landscape, and now many of them are no longer with us.
