"Strategy is still useful in turbulent industries like consumer electronics, fast-moving consumer goods, television, publishing, photography, and...well, you get the idea. Leaders in these businesses can compete effectively—but not by sticking to the same old playbook. In a world where a competitive advantage often evaporates in less than a year, companies can’t afford to spend months at a time crafting a single long-term strategy. To stay ahead, they need to constantly start new strategic initiatives, building and exploiting many transient competitive advantages at once. "
If you think business is business, you’re simply wrong. In truth, business takes two distinct forms, and they could scarcely be less alike. One kind of business, as shown in the exhibit “Complex-Systems Model,” is geared toward delivering customized solutions to demanding and deep-pocketed customers. The other, as shown in the exhibit “Volume-Operations Model,” is designed to package a company’s proprietary strength (its core technology, which may or may not be very high-tech) into standard products that meet the generic needs of mass markets. Let’s look at how these two different competitive focal points give rise to wholly different business models.

"Medical technologies – medicines, vaccines and medical devices – are essential for public health. Access to essential medicines and inadequate research on neglected diseases have been a major concern for many years. More recently, the focus of health policy debate has broadened to consider how to promote innovation and how to ensure equitable access to all vital medical technologies.
Today’s health policy-makers need a clear understanding, both of the innovation processes that lead to new technologies and of the ways in which these technologies are disseminated through functional health systems. This study seeks to reinforce the understanding of the interplay between the distinct policy domains of health, trade and intellectual property, and of how they affect medical innovation and access to medical technologies. It captures a broad range of experience and data in dealing with the interplay between intellectual property, trade rules and the dynamics of access to, and innovation in, medical technologies. A collaborative effort by the WHO, the World Intellectual Property Organization and the World Trade Organization draws together the three Secretariats’ respective areas of expertise. For WHO the study is an important milestone in the context of the implementation of the Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property."
