Fast Follower course

My colleague Paul Lefrere suggested at lunchtime that we should put on a course on how to be a successful fast follower.  (i.e. How to successfully let others pay the price of being first mover and early adopter, and rushing in to new technologies just at the moment they begin to look like they’ll deliver serious value, but ahead of the mass/commoditised/me-too phase.)  He’d looked around but not seen anything like that.

But after some discussion, we decided it would be wrong to do that.  Better to wait until just after someone else does it first.
