Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems to me that the key purpose of a company is to be knowledgable and invent things. Audiences tend to ask for products that look a lot like what already exists. Companies can (but too rarely do) push further into new territory.

The key purpose of 400 year old joint stock company has always been to share the risk of moving into new and old territories.

The key purpose of future companies is as you describe, but the formal business education system doesn't recognize this and continues to train 'leaders' in the tasks of logistics - as theorized during and after WWII, and efficiently handled now by IT. These types of managers will be surplus to requirements in the future company.

You can't be me, I'm taken
