Well of course they had a miserable time... they should have gone to Harold's BBQ instead of to a cafeteria.

That's how you define "strategy"? Where did you learn your craft?
Strategy is not about timely action. It's about winning and losing. For every winner, there's a loser. The pie may grow, but I'll take as much of the growing pie as I can. Right from your mouth.

Eric Meyerson

"For every winner, there's a loser" requires an expansive definition of winning and losing. Otherwise, economic growth should equal zero, or all economic gains in history should have gone to the same "winners."

Here's an interesting piece from McKinsey about strategy in a structural break. This downturn requires new strategies to accommodate these new conditions. We will have winners and losers emerge from this downturn, but their ratio won't be 1:1.

Anyway, I dig your blog.
