success? For example, is management growth-oriented or efficiency-oriented? What is the organization’s approach to risk and short- versus
long-term planning horizons?

nonfinancial factors such as market share, reputation, human resources, physical facilities, or
patents? Support your response with relevant research and analysis.

the company vulnerable to technological changes or cyberattacks? Loss of high-talent personnel? Production disruptions?
