While Big Companies Deliberate, Small Companies Obliterate

I have a bunch of friends who work in big media companies. Many of them are well aware of the changes afoot resulting from digital media, internet delivery, user generated content, disintermediation, etc.

Many of them have shown me presentations they’ve made to their bosses suggesting direct assaults on the business models adopted by some of the emerging internet media juggernauts.

I give them my feedback and encouragement on their presentations.

Then a couple weeks later, when I ask them how it went, I always hear the same thing:

We are still trying to get a consensus internally around the idea and to get support from the key constituents

And my response is always the same:

While big companies deliberate, small companies obliterate.
