Focus vs Exploration

As a company, you can take your existing business and try to make it better. Become more efficient, do it at a larger scale.

Or you can explore new ideas. New directions. New problems.

Clearly, some balance of both are needed. If you only explore, you will never produce enough to create something of real value. If all you do is focus on execution, you won't be able to evolve and will soon be left behind.

Keeping this balance has been a challenge at Chorus One. I think we have tended to overweigh exploration. At the same time, this does mean that as an organization we have had extensive practice in creating and assessing new ideas. And there is a lot of value in that too.
