Classifying organization based on their perspective of Adaption Phases

In the last blog, we looked at how the organization could manage the adaptation cycle by considering the leading and lagging variables of the phase at hand. In today's blog, we would do the pretty famous skill of what an analytical manager would do - categorize base on the patterns. 

Based on the organization's unique strategy to relate to its chosen market and its configuration of technology-structure-process that is consistent with the market strategy, we can classify the organization into 3 classes:
  1. Defenders
  2. Prospectors
  3. Analyzers
Instead of defining these categories, I shall use the following table to increase our understanding about these:

Since we have classified the categories for their behavior the environment, I think this would be the best way to understand the classification.
