Absolutely. No doubt that knowledge is wealth and ability to share aptly within context is the real power. The way i see is by sharing we learn even more by getting multiple perspectives.

Re: Saving the best for last
Just to add to what you already mentioned: Agile approach has become the most commonly practiced enterprise wide these days. Because things are changing every minute. Hence there is no room to run long cycle of sequential steps only to find out your end product is long outdated. There comes the agility, which gives a chance of reality check and then get into the cycle with any additions to get into the cycle from that point on. 

That agility nature gives an opportunity to bridge any gaps from the fluid nature of things and then keep moving with next steps down the lane.

Re: Saving the best for last
Good point!

Yeah I thnk businesses will do the waiting game and watch to see what happens. Will things work out? What things didn't? And then take it into their own hands from there.

I think their goals are ambition and they may need to scale back and focus on one phase at a time. Working on multiple phases never works.

I'd never heard of snow-chasing before - thanks for that! (I always learn something from your comments!) It sounds more like something out of Game of Thrones than a business model!

Re: Saving the best for last
faryl,

Yes, that's the Japanese competitive strategy known as "snow-chasing" (because when you're chasing someone through snow, you just run in their tracks and go faster than they go trying to break trail through soft snow; and the person behind you goes faster still, and so on). Ultimately, though, it turns out to be a bad analogy. If you just copy the leader, the time it takes you to really understand what they do and follow in their tracks does not train your people either to innovate or to understand what you're doing -- so while you are catching up, that runner in front invents snowshoes, and then skis.  "Hang back and copy" works if you're already far behind, but if it's a close race, the things they learn by innovating keep widening the gap that you're trying to close by copying.
