Practical Examples of Strategy

One of my projects for the next year is to collect as many examples, primarily business examples, of good and bad strategy. Stories that illustrate the lessons of positioning, unity, focus, innovation, and so on. The problem with most "news" reports is that they are little more than press releases for large corporations: focusing on products, deals, and the moment rather than anything meaningful about strategy. Off of the top of my head, I only know of one television that portrays the application of good strategy as it should be. Strangely enough, it is the restaurant make-over show, Kitchen Nightmares (differing versions on FOX and BBC). In virtually every show, Chef Ramsey illustrates major features of good strategy: positioning an overlooked niche in the market, focusing on that niche often by cutting down the menu, uniting the restaurant, getting the kitchen and serving staff working together and so on. In an hour show, he actually makes strategic makeovers look easy.
