The Scenario "We’ve been doing this a long time and have grown up as a business. We’ve got the technical and operational side down to a science; we've mastered the numbers side and addressed the legal side. My sales guys know what they are doing. So we have a lot of things in place that are working well.
What am I missing? I know there's an upside to focusing on the people side of the business, but aside from training and human resources, I'm not really sure what that means."
