Quotes by Michael Porter

  • “The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.”

  • “Strategy is about setting yourself apart from the competition. It’s not a matter of being better at what you do – it’s a matter of being different at what you do.”

  • “There’s a fundamental distinction between strategy and operational effectiveness.”

  • “If your goal is anything but profitability – if it’s to be big, or to grow fast, or to become a technology leader – you’ll hit problems.”

  • “Finally, strategy must have continuity. It can’t be constantly reinvented.””

  • ““You can’t be all things to all people.””
