As Michael Porter stated in his 1996 Harvard Business Review Article, strategy is about being different.
To be successful in the long-term, companies need to positively differentiate from their competitors through a unique combination of value-creating activities. Merely focusing on isolated operational effectiveness programs can help short-term profitability, but it won’t generate lasting competitive advantage.
