Many organizations have good people, attractive products, valuable services, and even smart strategies, but the various aspects of their organizations do not cohere. They have conflicting priorities. Different departments work at cross-purposes. Goals and strategies keep changing, and resource allocation rewards political gamesmanship. These organizations are not aligned, and they pay a painful price for it in the marketplace and in their employee disengagement and attrition. By Bob and Gregg Vanourek

Colorado is emerging from a recession in which our smaller, growth-oriented companies hunkered down, preserved capital and did what they could to stay alive.  Now that the economy has bounced back, the need for growth capital at these companies is high. Private financing for such companies can be tough to find, with a relatively small pool of local venture capital firms operating here compared with the heady dotcom days.  So companies have to look outside the state for such financing. Enter London’s AIM exchange. By James Wall
