Research by McKinsey has found that where a company competes is more important than how it competes. In analysing revenue between 1996 and 2006 of 400 large-cap companies, it emerged that more than half of all of the growth of the average company was due to underlying growth in market segments, and to a lesser degree in M&A. Relatively little growth was achieved through organic gains in market share.
