6.1 Management Team Gaps

Currently, the firm doesn't have a corporate leader to manage the anticipated growth of the company during its third year of operation and beyond. As sales grow, the focus will be on production. The management of the company's resources and decisions on how to effectively grow the firm will demand an individual with extensive management expertise as well as experience in the interactive gaming industry. This is critical vacancy will be addressed during the third year. The firm will hire a President to fill this role.
