Does it make sense

It is said the human race has moved from being hunter gatherers into farmers, but is one so different from the other, isn’t it just the natural human instinct to protect what you have. Human nature still sees us hunt down the next opportunity to invest our lives in, then to hoard gains -just in case.

As in any race some are just better at it than others. That means gains become surpluses, a surplus then has value that can be traded. Trading then gets rewarded; those rewards get invested in producing yet more gains.

To keep the momentum going, the message gets passed along, so others can benefit from this trading.

Quite naturally others see this happening and want to achieve similar, so the process starts, the race as in human race starts to take on a life of its own.

For a while it all makes sense, those that replicate the original also gain. The message of what's available spreads quicker as more and more are sending it out. So more (consumers) arrive to take advantage while they continue their own race in a different direction - the need grows.

As this is a race, these producers want their offering to be the first across the finishing line, a different choice maybe, a more beneficial choice even, but the first choice. You could say Marketing is born.

It could make sense to turn up in the same market place as the dominant player, after all there is just a chance by shadowing them some of their magic might come your way.

Meanwhile down the road there is an upstart setting up their stall on a different playing field in the path of those looking for the market, as such get the pitch to themselves. So, the advantage moves to this upstart....more

Following the move in the US towards IGU automation, earlier this year we saw the first similar production line in the UK at Double R in Wellingborough. Made to measure IGU's rolling of the line every 20 seconds, with just one or two guys in attendance, says it all.

Logic from that is to compete, your IGU's need to perform, be of a consistent quality and roll off the assembly line every 20 seconds to keep pace with those around you.

Then again competing is and always has been, finding the edge, the differentiator from others.
