Room for a Thousand Flowers to Bloom
May/June 2006 (vol. 26 no. 3)
pp. 6, 93
Shane Greenstein, Kellog Graduate School of Management
Does concentrated commercial leadership or dispersed commercial leadership more efficaciously explore value? Concentrated or dispersed commercial leadership describes whether a small or large range of firms, respectively, can commercialize potential services and products for a similar, though uncertain, technological opportunity. This is both a philosophical and a practical question. The philosophical viewpoint questions whether there's merit to letting a thousand flowers bloom. The practical viewpoint questions what happens when the market lacks room for such variety.
