Abstract:

Danny Miller 1992 coined the phrase Icarus paradox to describe how having a competitive advantage and superiority status can lead to an unforeseen failure of organizations and individuals that do not maintain situational awareness. Miller 1992 argues that people and organizations get caught in a vicious circle whereby their victories and strengths so often seduce them into the excesses that cause their downfall.
