“Today, the only way to have an advantage is through innovation. There has to be a strategic vision within which you are innovating. A company has to have something distinctive at the end of the day that it is reinforcing.” – Michael E. Porter, Harvard Business School – The Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness.
