HARDBALL FIVE KILLER STRATEGIES FOR TROUNCING THE COMPETITION PDF

Posted by: Kim Warren. I am reminded of what may be one of the most dangerous articles on competitive strategy I ever read. Now the article is correct to highlight the competitive strength and commitment of powerful firms like Toyota, Wal-Mart, and Dell. But to reduce their highly sophisticated strategic management to a fatuous list of bullet points is an insult to these mighty industry leaders.
