Sustaining Success

These situations rarely occur and are transitory in nature. The more mature and resilient the organization, the longer it can remain balanced in Sustaining Success. Quantitatively Managed (Level 4) and Optimizing (Level 5) organizations constantly self-assess and respond to problems early. And when systemic shocks occur, these organizations respond quickly and realign themselves with reality. So they move quickly through Realignment and return to Sustaining Success. Their ability to evolve is part of the reason why investors pay such a high premium for organizations that possess this level of maturity.
