I find this kind of statement literally incredible, whether taken in it as
a direct statement, or as its implied negative:
"Successful companies never get beaten or overtaken on their own turf - think
mainframes and IBM, Kodak and film."
The prosaic rendition of the same is that a very large number of attempts
to overtake these large established activities, and, unsurprisingly, very
few, but some, have succeeded. Rather than being a sparkling insight, it
is more or less what you would expect, isn't it.
