Focus on the fringe

Nice case study here of how Michelin moved from their “core business” and expanded beyond the scope of their traditional business of rubber processing to publishing tourist guidebooks. The Nokia example is more well known as it is more extreme. In neither case could this been seen as a smart move according to conventional wisdom but it’s success implies that the conventional wisdom needs to be re-written, and it is.
