Strategies for a discontinuous future.












Wednesday, June 16, 2004
 


The aestheticization of Wal-Mart. Veery interesting. Wal-Mart is an example b-schools love to use of radical innovation in retail. Of course, it's only corporate types who haven't been able to see Wal-Mart sowing the seeds of it's own destruction - ultraspecializing all of it's competences towards the same vision of the future, and thereby creating a massive competence trap. Now, stakeholders outside the traditional corporate mindset that are effectively Wal-Mart's only rival: the community. But because b-schools and other corporate types couldn't (wouldn't) fathom Wal-Mart massive strategic errors, they couldn't see this coming.
