2. "Deciding which generic strategy to employ is perhaps the most important strategic commitment a company makes – it tends to drive the rest of the strategic actions a company decides to undertake and it sets the whole tone for the pursuit of a competitive advantage over rivals.” (Thompson, Chapter 5, pg. 103)
