『The Innovator’s Dilemma』 (reprinted edtion 2011)
／ Clayton M. Christensen
(HAPPER Business, p.270)
As we have see before, these companies did not fail
because the technology wasn’t available.
They did not fail because they lacked information
about hydraulics or how to use it; indeed, the best of
them used to it as soon as it could help their customers.
They did not fail because management was sleepy or arrogant.
They failed because hydraulics didn’t make sense
– until it was too late.
(Why Great Companies Can Fail, p.82)
What benefit, if any, did leadership in this technology
give to the pioneers?
There is no evidence that the leaders gained any significant
competitive advantage over the followers; none of the firms
that pioneered thin-film technology gained significant
market share on that account.
In addition, pioneering firms appear not to have developed
any sort of learning advantage enabling them to leverage
their early lead to attain higher levels of density
than did followers.
