Best Candidates for Market Dominance

I’ve been doing B2B market dominance strategy and execution for (gulp) 25 years now, and I’ve seen a pattern in the types of companies that are good candidates for market dominance and those that will never get there without an “attitude adjustment.”  Ditto for the executive leadership.  I’ve found that the best candidates for market dominance share certain characteristics. Take a little look in the mirror to see where you stand.
