How To Analyze Your Business To Find Hidden Monopolies

A talk with Professor Milind Lele, author of Monopoly Rules

Real monopolies are often totally neglected, and the worst example is when a midsize company is showing a loss on a product that is producing high profits without allocations of overheads says Milind Lele, author of Monopoly Rules. Does the customer only see you? Does the competition not see you? Lele cites the example of Sears getting blindsided by Wal-Mart. Sears saw Wal-Mart as a discounter, not as a competitor.

Why Is This Relevant To The Midmarket: 

Midsize companies need to constantly analyze their reasons for getting ahead in a particular market and be prepared for those other businesses that can take them down a peg or two.
