The last post ended with "...the crop of the world's largest enterprise have no strategy and are aspiring to be followers" (See that one for more)
But no company can live with that!
Surely they have something along the lines of "we shall be number one" or "we will win" or "we will be the biggest and greatest and leave every competitor in the gutter" in their strategy papers...
...or at least that is what can be heard murmured among the top brass occasionally.
So what to do when you do not want to be different from your competition?
Gobble, gobble, gobble...
If you cannot beat them, buy them, eat'em, devour, wolf'em down.
Buy number one and become number one, buy number three, four, five, six... and become number one. Buy everything in sight, buy, buy, buy.
Ever seen that out there?
Now you know why ;)
