The “needle” in the haystack (the almost impossible search for something very valuable that is compact, lost or hidden in something that is relatively enormous) is an old adage that is more relevant today than ever. Entrepreneurs may experience the “hay” as information, intellectual property, markets, technologies, laws and regulations, ideas, distribution channels, financial methods and institutions, strategies, manufacturing technique, new materials, relationships and the size and number of competitors. Almost everything in business is increasing in size and complexity. Fortunately, the size and number of opportunities, the speed to produce a new product, and the speed to sell a product, globally, are also increasing. Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt, says “every two days we now create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003”. That equates to one billion gigabytes of information. The haystack is growing exponentially. It has grown through the roof of the barn and is now in the clouds!
The overall strategy to enter the market has shifted. We can no longer keep products or businesses a secret. We cannot go unnoticed by major competitors by just selling in our local community, expanding into a region or gradually developing the market in a country. Giants from around the world see us as soon as we market our product, anywhere. They lobby for laws to prohibit or limit our product. They quickly improve upon our product, cut off distribution channels, claim patent infringement or recruit our key employees. This shift indicates that the introduction/retirement cycles for products continues to shorten. The haystack is not only growing larger but the time to find and monetize the “needle” has become shorter. The strategies once useful in increasing our abilities to find and monetize the “needle” have quickly become obsolete.
