It is said that the fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. Whether generalist or specialist, an organization needs to claim a niche and serve it so well that the competition is irrelevant.

This episode explores (among other things) how Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton and Starbucks have created a mutually beneficial ecosystem that serves convention goers in downtown Atlanta (USA).
