One more quick insight from Malcolm Gladwell in an Inc. article (The Real Reason David Beats Goliath):

“This is the classic story of the business world. The very same thing that appears to make a company so formidable–its size, its resources–serve as stumbling blocks when they’re forced to respond to a situation where the rules are changing, and where nimbleness, and flexibility, and adaptability are better attributes. Which is the story of David and Goliath, right? David had nimbleness. He changed the rules. He brought in the superior of technology.”
