Compete with yourself!

In these lean mean times where agility is mandatory to stay profitable with productive, motivated and innovative team - the most valuable brand in the world (worth approx $40 bn) decides to compete with itself in order to stay competitive.

Just came across this interesting viewpoint about why google had to buy motorola to rectify its earlier challenges:

"...with Motorola, Google got a hold of the vehicle through which it can create and sell integrated products. The company is thus no longer just a plumber but also a house builder and real estate developer. It can now build showcases that demonstrate the value of its services. The challenge then is how it will sell plumbing to contractors while it also competes with them by building houses..."
