Subduing in business means to vanquish a need in humanity through the cultivation of allocated resources. The quagmire we see not only determines the need of resources we will utilize, but also to what extent we will do so. What is our responsibility to the earth and our fellow humans?
Subduing also entails anticipating future needs for products or services. Those who are able to deftly do this find themselves still in business. Those who cannot become like Sears, Toys“R”Us, and Blockbuster or find themselves losing market share, like Blackberry or Motorola.
Success incorporates your ability to anticipate need and shift to meet it, while expanding internal processes and capabilities (scaling). We must review the “Five Capital Model”, look at technical feasibility, operational implementability, and the nuances of political and bureaucratic influence. Having a “360” view allow for better allocation of resources and achievement of goals.
Recalibration and restructuring are vital components to repositioning businesses for success.
