I am looking for information dealing with the concepts of strategic
'fit' and 'reach' as innovations in strategic thinking.
Request for Question Clarification byomnivorous-ga
Is there a particular framework (or even timeframe) within which you
want to examine this issue? For example, do you want to deal with
Porter's concepts? Or issues raised since 1990?
And how important is the literature on acquisition failures?
Clarification of Question bygrantw-ga
I am investigating the degree to which the concepts of 'fit' and
'stretch' have been innovations in strategic thinking. To this order I
think that the work of both Porter and Hamel and Prahalad is important
as well as any other studies or commentaries that may have relevant
input. The relevant time frame is not too important as long as it
falls within the bounds of 'recent' (say last 15 years or so)
developments in strategic thinking.
I do need your input rather urgently as I would need to consider your
input by tomorrow at the latest.
Thanks for the assistance!
