First you would need to make sure that you have a solid foundation and keep in mind your Goals and once you make that goal you stick to it. Also, you would need a BHAG. A BHAG is a Big Hairy Audacious Goal. An example of this would be when Boeing made their 707 jumbo jet. Boeing didn't know what would happen. This could of been the end of Boeing but, their persistence aided them in this competition of power.
Now you need to make sure that you keep your key elements as well as your key components. And for this you can use the "A and B" method instead of the "A or B". This method states that you should go for good quality AND good service instead of choosing one or the other.
