The Escher Cycle is a top-to-bottom account of business strategy and operations. It describes the minimum key activities that enable a business to succeed. Operational ability at these essential activities is what generates strategic competitive advantage. Competence at the final, seventh, layer makes that advantage self-reinforcing.
