Abstract: 

An established engineering office needs to consistently monitor usual business measures such as financial analysis, revenue capture and employment opportunities to be sure that the operation is on the right track. Other areas that should be evaluated as part of an ongoing commitment are: community values, long-term relationships, and internal and external corporate culture. Without this evaluation Earth Tech runs the risk of not being able match their resources to meet the customer requirements and deliver effective solutions. Other areas that should be evaluated as part of an ongoing commitment are: community values, long-term relationships, and both internal and external corporate culture, to determine if there is a fit over the long term. This paper reviews the intangible aspects of business and discusses their relevance when conducting business in a remote community. It presents some of the issues that are of concern at present, evaluates how previous events, decisions, and past actions may have conspired to create these circumstances, and suggests actions or guidelines for future operations.
