It’s interesting that part of SpaceX’s competitive advantage is its labor force. In many ways, this is not a sustainable model. As competitors enter this space they will be able to poach key talent and not only take existing developments but leverage these minds to surpass SpaceX. It must be said that retention and motivation must go hand and hand with innovation and progress.
It’s interesting to hear what happens when such techniques are adopted en masse. Obama’s campaign strategy has become the gold standard for campaigns across the country. These tactics are now being employed in campaigns across the country. Does this mean that they have now lost their competitive advantage. If so, what can be done to continue the success of such a model?
Interesting post! It’s interesting but I never considered how large a role just owning and maintaining space must have when designing such an operation. However, I wonder what complexities this drives when expanding. The sheer investment alone must be massive. It also must include staffing and maintenance considerations going forward. I wonder how the founders will approach this challenge going forward.
