Core Competence - How to avoid Imitation

If the competence is built around technological innovation, keeping in mind consumer needs and preferences, it gives the organization a distinct competitive advantage and market leadership in a niche segment, though it may not last too long if the organization does not innovate continuously.

It also depends on the market being targeted, and product life-cycle, and consumer maturity curve.
