Emotional hijacks – this priming, this mechanism, which is usually so positive in evolution – can take us over. During these hijacks we can become very angry. When the dust settles we often think, "Oh, why did I say that?"

Trying to be just a little bit more open is part of the challenge that the confirmation bias sets us. Can we entertain those doubts for just a little longer? Can we even let the facts sway us and perform that most fantastical of feats: changing our minds?

The End of Competitive Advantage

The End of Competitive Advantage | Wise Leadership | 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!

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."

Leadership has a great deal to do with which way our inner state goes. Emotions are contagious. And they flow most strongly from the most powerful person in a group outward. This gives leaders a great tool, and a great responsibility. A leader needs to manage her own emotional state well, so she can impact others in the direction of well being.

Typically, we choose our leaders for their skill at conveying messages clearly and powerfully. But, in my experience, it's their ability to receive messages that distinguishes the best leaders from the rest.

You may have already sensed that companies with a clear sense of purpose do better than those without one. A new study from Deloitte confirms it: organizations that focus their energies beyond pure profit do better than those without a "culture of purpose." And yet, the survey also reveals that most executives and employees think that businesses aren’t doing enough to create this kind of culture.

Organisations must also accommodate the different work attitudes and motivations of the generations, moving if necessary to a flatter organisational structure and providing opportunities for freer movement.

Deborah Long's curator insight, May 27, 2013 9:58 PM

An organizational shift and transition will occur in the work place as Generations X and Y inherit leadership roles once held by retiring Baby Boomers. Guided by a different set of values than Boomers, Gen X and Y will likely redefine leadership in years to come.
