There is no such thing as a last move advantage or a late starter advantage. Those protagonists with the right amount of political-legal influences can override most social-political-based business situations.
Compass Rule: When the political-legal rule is greater than the immediate economic benefit, the outcome becomes obvious.
Exception: Disrupt the power behind the political-legal rule and the social economic influence prevails.
First move advantage works when one has synchronized the proper set of political, economic, social and technological influences into their package of strategic power. We will touch more on this topic later.
The key to staying ahead of the curve is to know the Compass rules and the settings behind the Big Tangible Picture (BTP) before deciding strategically.
While the amateurs are usually focused on understanding the rules, the professionals already know the configuration and the scope of the terrain. They are just focused on the exceptions to the rules.
