In budgeting behavior an ESO confines itself to progressive non-dramatic changes in the allocation and size of its budgets.
In strategically adaptive behavior an ESO may make dramatic reallocation and expansions/contractions of the budgets, as well as incremental changes in products, markets, technology, or in its managerial capability, or in logistic capability. But all of the changes are consistent with the historical culture of the ESO.
In strategically discontinuous behavior an ESO makes a shift in the strategic thrust, or in the strategic action potential, or both. The behavior is discontinuous, contrary to the norms of the historical culture of the ESO.
