Software Product Strategy Types

1. No Strategy
2. Shortsighted: Time duration is very small, some time just next step of No Strategy
3. Tunnel Vision: Narrowly focused
4. Too Broad: Opposite of Tunnel Vision
5. Follow the leader
6. Peripheral Integration: Integrate related and unrelated product lines/platforms to define a new product line/platform
7. Rat Race: Just running for me too products
8. Ahead of Time: Envisioning a product line/platform which is ahead of time in terms of availability of infrastructure, availability of supporting systems, cultural and societal acceptability
Practically in any successful product company a mix of above strategy types remain in practice.
