The End of Competitive Advantage

The End of Competitive Advantage | Small Business and Social Media | Scoop.it

Virtually all strategy frameworks and tools in use today are based on a single dominant idea: that the purpose of strategy is to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. This idea is strategy’s most fundamental concept. It’s every company’s holy grail. And it’s no longer relevant for more and more companies...

I love Rita's work and this is a great read. Her big idea that competitive advantage is fleeting is on point. The way she recommends dealing with it to become systematic about innovation and she offers a "playbook" framework. I agree with Christopher's caution about not changing for change's sake. Thanks!
Suchitra Mishra's curator insight, July 1, 2013 11:42 PM

Brilliant insights. Need to read this before reviewing/creating your organizational strategy

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, July 2, 2013 10:48 AM

Steve Denning discusses this intriguing new book called 'The End of Competitive Advantage'. According to the author Rita Gunther McGrath, all our current ideas about strategy and competitive advantage are based on the 'old economy'. The 'Creative Economy', however, requires a different strategy approach.


For example, "one of the biggest changes is “to stop thinking of within-industry competition as the most significant competitive threat. (..) Today, competition can come from anywhere. Now entire product lines—whole markets—could be destroyed almost overnight as customers defect in droves by “big bang disruption."
