 "Sharply focused strategies are essential. However, the key differentiator increasingly lies in the ability of the organization to interpret, align and adapt.  There is nothing more powerful than a highly aligned, highly committed workforce pulling together to accomplish a common set of objectives. This mutual self-interest is a company's 'core strength' and is at the heart of sustainable competitive advantage.".
