    Advice to Management

    Wall Street is not interested in sustainability, but instead the immediate and best returns that an organization can provide each quarter. When your organization burns out from running at peak lean efficiency, another organization takes your place and the cycle repeats itself. Don't be afraid to reign in overly optimistic projections in the best interest of preserving the morale and integrity of your workforce. The products, services, and investment in technology are long term assets that ensure we are relevant and competitve for years to come, but all this means nothing without a motivated and committed workforce. There is no future in rapid expansion without a good workforce to provide adequate support on the back end in order to ensure sustainability.
