Extreme and continuous product/service differentiation primarily through Humanized (Extreme Humanization) and Sustainable Design; every product/service is "remarkable."
Every employee a "licensed innovator."

Pursue the George Whalin dictate: "Be the best. It's the only market that's not crowded."

Instant and overpowering response to problems.

Greater attention to (enormous/pitifully under-served) "oldies" market.

Overall employment growth principally through small-company Excellence. (Centerpiece is, for example, numerous 4-person over-the-moon companies becoming 8-person companies in the next 36 months.)
IA (Intelligence Augmented) >> AI (Artificial Intelligence).
EXCELLENCE. ALWAYS. (Guiding axiom: Excellence is the next 5 minutes. Or nothing at all.)
