    I agree with what you said, companies can no longer build upon the past. The life expectancy has dropped tremendously in the past decade. As a company grows so should their strategy, they cannot just go off of mistakes made in the past and think changing them for the future will be better for your company. A company can’t move forward without a strategy so therefore I do not believe it is dead.

    I agree with the past no longer being a good predictor of the future especially in todays market how things tend to change so rapidly. This is mainly due to the internet and technological advances. I believe that the worst thing a company could do is revert back to strategies and procedures that were effective in the past. That being said I do believe that the past shouldn’t be ignored. Like we’ve gone over in class the 3 main ways to achieve competitive advantage and be a powerful force in a particular industry is differentiation, cost, and response. Strategy is something that is ever-changing and it is in a companies best interest to include mid and lower level management in the strategic planning process because these are the employees that are the face of the company and have a better understanding of the direction in which the external environment is headed.
