Visionary CEOs are not “just” great at assuring world-class execution of a tested and successful business model, they are also world-class innovators. Visionary CEOs are product and business model centric and extremely customer focused.Steve Blank, on why the second principle of entropy occurs in business ecosystems, noticing that a certain mediocrity does not equals to poverty.

The best are agile and know how to pivot – make a substantive change to the business model while or before their market has shifted. The very best of them shape markets – they know how to create new markets by seeing opportunities before anyone else. They remain entrepreneurs.
The very best technology companies excel at saying no. This was, after all, the mantra of the late Steve Jobs, who liked to say that Apple said no to more good ideas than it said yes to. He prized focus and discipline almost as much as smooth edges and elegant presentations.Quoting the great Adam Lashinsky from his short written letter via Fortune

...A computer engineer named Ivan Sutherland invented the first AR headset in 1968. It was an unwieldy thing—a massive contraption of wires and pipes suspended above the user.

Seventh sensers create communities--“gatelands” with borders--for which they serve as powerful gatekeepers. And they know how to design software that serves as a platform on which other things can be provided to those in the gateland.
