A good conscience is a continual Christmas. Benjamin Franklin
We will focus on competitive analysis starting with economies of scale. In our study we want to identify the general principles behind why firms behave as they do, not in trying to develop lists of characteristics that lead to automatic success. There is no such list. Perhaps you can tell I am not a fan of Jim Collins’ book, Good to Great or his other works. His books may be a commercial success because people want cookie-cutter, paint-by-numbers solutions to complex business problems. Good luck.
So get ready to work hard.
Meanwhile, I hope you don’t come across a Bad Santa:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wx0B61X-aFE&feature=fvsr
Merry Christmas to all!
