A strategic inflection point is a time in the life of a business, when it’s fundamentals are about to change.
Strategic inflection points can be caused by technological change but they are more than technological change. A strategic inflection point can be deadly when unattended to. Companies that begin a decline as a result of it’s changes rarely recover their previous greatness.
But strategic inflection points do not always lead to disaster. When the way business is being conducted changes, it creates opportunities for players who are adept at operating in the new way.
