ABSTRACT
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.
