The company that everyone else used as a benchmark has the inevitable happen: a dramatic fall from the power position to one that is looking to change to keep up with the rest of the pack that somehow caught up.

What makes this era's dynamics even more intense are changes speeding up the distribution of product from supplier to consumer.
