Strategy vs. Operations
Put another way, is operational excellence sufficient competitive advantage? I think it is.
I'm taking the liberty of substituting "operations" for "tactics." Tactical and strategic managers generally don't get along. However, tactics, in my opinion, is more of a survival effort than a business strategy. I guess truth is it's probably the best path for most companies. Sure, blind strategerie is useless without competent tactics, but you can’t lead with tactics alone. You can survive, but not thrive.
