In Netcore, in the past, we have never managed to have sustained profitability for us to think beyond the quarter. I have always wanted to create a situation where we have a solid base for today, and then can start looking at the future. I have believed that we have to make today’s business profitable and sustainably so. That foundation now exists in Netcore.
In the past too, I would experiment with multiple ideas in Netcore. But when you are loss-making, it becomes hard to justify such investments. And come a moment of truth, one ends up sacrificing the future products to ensure today’s solutions deliver results.
Each of the business areas we have in Netcore now has a roadmap for the future. Here too, some ideas will work, and many will fail. But the good thing is that there is a plan that now goes across time horizons, and is funded by today’s profits. Working across time horizons is one of the joys of running a profitable mid-sized company.
