Comparing biotechnologies with IBM's PC venture and with Airbus raises one more interesting issue. In both the PC and the Airbus cases, external signals were clear, and both efforts followed a series of failures (for IBM to compete successfully at the low end of the market and for the European aerospace industry to capture large civilian markets). Failures within the firm could be ascribed to a lack of differentiation, and the need to increase differentiation thus be made legitimate. In biotechnology, signals are less clear, and there are no precedents.
