Adam Smith vs Big Companies

Why does narrow beat the broad?


Let's say you have to repair your teeth. Where would you go?

To a general hospital and try to find a dentist?

Or would you go to a specialized dentist?


What is more, even in the dentist's office, they would send you to a specialized dental surgeon if you need specialized treatment.


The Great Adam Smith nailed it almost 250 years ago by saying, that labor division means absolute advantage compared to producers that do various tasks.


So in DevsX, we decided to spend 100 percent of our focus on Xamarin to provide a tremendously high level of development.


Now, let's take a look at Steve Jobs circa 1998 when he had just come back to Apple.

He laid off people, departments, and products literally in bundles.

Moreover, people were even afraid to just meet him at the elevator because oftentimes it could be their last day at Apple.


But what were the results of this?

Apple skyrocketed from the deep valley to one of the top tech companies.


While other companies catch up on mobile, web, and desktop development, we single-mindedly focus on Xamarin development.


It's a bug of our nature to strive towards too many things.

The more the better right?

But the point is that we only have a limited capacity in our circuits and we can only reach top results in a narrow corridor.

So in our case, less is more.


Maybe, I shall continue about the reasons for this in the next article.
