    The business outlook for the business is often brighter than the business outlook of the business!

    Talented dedicated people
    Great benefits...outstanding benefits.
    Great potential
    Cash flow and successful stock IPO


    Mis-guided self-serving middle management.
    No sense of team based leadership
    Business segments are highly silo'd
    Lack of consensus with regards to identity, not possible to describe company in 30 seconds with any degree of clarity.
    Loss of expertise in energy research and insight. CERA has become irrelevant.
    Stuck in antiquated business models that limit pathways of progressive growth.
    Lack of focus on industry specific market sectors.
    No real understanding of government(s) business.
    Management has failed to provide any leadership regarding employee development.
    Metrics towards the development of SMART goals & objectives are often mis-understood and dependent on external events that are beyond the control of many employees.
    Employee goals and objectives are rarely communicated in a manner that would synergize the individual, the team or business group with the overall company mission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage the middle management, make them accountable for all aspects of the areas they are responsible for.
    While the acquisition strategy sounds plausible to shareholders and the board, underneath it is simply not working. There is great potential "IF" the strategy was being executed as planned. That plan is not understood, nor is it defined or documented, thus, creating limitations to the overall potential of this company. Hopefully a stock dump and run is not in order.
