A company that move fast is able to change directions on a dime when the market shifts. Too many companies are run by “managers” and not visionary leaders. Many workers are just getting a paycheck because there is no vision. They need to be told what to do only because there is no roadmap or strategy. Key for “fast companies” is hiring right and getting all the horses in alignment.

Speed is not the only differentiator right now, though. The New England Patriots are champions because of strategic leadership. But you are correct that speed is an essential variable. Good strategy without a competent team will not take you where you want to go.

And if you’re going the wrong way, it doesn't really matter how fast you are…
