The Plan calls for coordinated action to address the dynamic and interconnected challenges faced by the state’s water system.
Or use the “portfolio” strategy—establishing operations outside your home region that report to home base—if you need to average out economic cycles across regions.
Shift among the five regional strategies—or combine them—as circumstances evolve.
By creatively blending regional strategies, Toyota surpassed Ford as the world’s second-largest automaker in 2004.
