The Value of Exclusivity
An exclusive team can find a small niche to operate in. By being exclusive, they can focus on a narrow goal. All of their resources can be funneled into a small area. This can make the team excellent at this small area. The more closely a team guards an identity, the more narrow their niche becomes. The world has greatly benefited from narrowly focused teams that accepted their exclusivity and focused their effort at what they do best.
