Review quote

`It was in the 1980s that Professor Michael Scott-Morton pointed out that it was impossible to obtain a sustainable competitive advantage through the use of information technology ... From a depth of analytical research Michael pointed out that, although it might temporarily put you ahead of the game, all that it gave you was a head start. The mere possession of the technology was not enough.'
John Harvey-Jones in Managing to Survive
