g-f(2)76 THE BIG PICTURE OF THE DIGITAL AGE, Bain & Company, The Engine 2 Imperative: New Business Innovation and Profitable Growth under Turbulence.

Extra-condensed knowledge

For more than two decades, our research has shown that focusing on one strong core business, constantly innovating on its repeatable model, relentlessly pushing out the boundaries of the business and achieving the economics of leadership has been the formula that has characterized more than 90% of major growth success stories. 
  • But the business environment is changing in ways that increase both the need and the potential for leadership teams, even those with the strongest and most profitable core businesses, to consider investing in a second major growth engine.
  • This Engine 2 can hedge against disruption of the core business, or it can take advantage of shifting business boundaries in newly accessible adjacent markets.
