There’s power in being more flexible than your competition.

Fouad Bendris’s insight:
Getting in the game helps define the game, but it’s essential to have some idea — even a vague one — of what the game might eventually be. For the next generation, that game will often be about pushing the production and provision of products and services ever closer to the moment of demand.

Businesses able to most cost-effectively provide it will win.
