Kodak, which ruled the imaging industry through innovation for more than a century, found itself facing tough times in the early 2000s. The company lost focus by diversifying into many products and also failed to keep in touch with the changing needs of the consumers. Though a pioneer in the digital space, the company failed to take the initiative and capitalize on the digital business due to fear of cannibalizing the existing product lines. The company slowly started moving into the digital space but found that it was too late and the competition had become formidable. The company realigned its business model and brought in top executives from outside in a bid to recapture lost ground.
