Corporate competition will become 3-dimensional due to the proliferation of focused companies in the age of transparency. Competition will be about capturing returns, not about gaining horizontal market share. In many cases, the key determinant of returns will be the ability to defend or extract returns from vertical competitors. The chapter introduces a new measure to assess 3-dimensional competitive strength, relative power strength (RPS).
