Companies that have complete vision and are efficiently capable of executing them fall under Leaders. They are generally large and mature businesses. Challengers have the ability to execute, but short on vision. Businesses that are large and settled with minimal future plans fall under this. Visionaries are said to score lower on the ability to execute and higher on the completeness of vision. They are generally the smaller companies. Niche players are short of the ability to execute and completeness of vision.
