“When a young child first rides a bicycle, the bike is often equipped with training wheels to make learning easier. […] But the full capabilities of the bicycle cannot be exploited while using training wheels—you certainly never see anyone in a bicycle race using them.”
“Businesses can’t win the competitive race using training wheels.”
I tend to agree with the article. If you’re in a full control, you’re too slow.
Another (and rather sad) story is, that (some) businesses don’t need to win the race because of their markt position. Think Deutsche Telekom for example.
