  2. 2. Submetricsto Measure Clockspeed<br />Each industry evolves at a different rate depending on the following:<br />Process: measured by capital equipment obsolescence rates<br />Product: measured by rates of new product introduction or intervals between new product generations<br />Organizational: measured by rates of change in organizational structures<br />
  3. 3. Submetricsto Measure Clockspeed<br />Assets that are not explicitly process, product, or organizational<br /> distribution channels<br />film industry – from small local theatres to regional megaplexes, <br />broadcast networks were augmenented by cable, satellite, and internet<br />Hypermarkets – combination of department store and supermarket<br /> brand names – some brands (Coca-Cola, Tide) developed over decades and may be quite durable, while some established a strong brand image in a fairly short period of time.<br />

  8. 8. Clockspeed Drivers:Technology and Competition<br />technological innovation - Even slow-clockspeed industries today, in fact, will tell you that their underlying technologies are speeding things up for them because they rely on information communication technologies like everyone else<br />competitive intensity - Today's trade regime and partly because Internet-based commerce basically allows any supplier in the world to reach any customer segment in the world. So no matter what business you're in, there are more suppliers who can get to your customers today than in the past (e.g. steel industry)<br />
  9. 9. Clockspeed Drivers:Technology and Competition<br />This results in the marginalization of the concept of sustainable advantage<br />The faster the clockspeed, the more temporary the advantage<br />This idea that you can develop a set of capabilities that will sustain you for a long period of time is now obsolete. You have to think of advantage as being temporary. The goal today is to find your way from one temporary advantage to the next one<br />
