Business Fitness

In nature, the more offspring an organism produces the less fit each individual of the offspring is on average. The relationship between number of offspring and their fitness is an inverse relationship.

This could also be true in business. A business that would keep on producing too many new  products or attempting to expand rapidly would suffer from a low average 'fitness' value for its products. Conversely, if a company focuses most of its energy, efforts and resources (R&D, marketing, ... etc) on fewer winner products or services, it would probably get a higher fitness value on average for such well nourished products or services.
