But for the organization? There were no processes and systems in place to integrate the outpost team with the company HQ and the rest of the organization. That meant that although the outpost team had struck gold, there was no means of sharing it among the rest of the firm. The company risked losing the value it had invested to create. And, indeed, that is what happened. Some of the outpost team were hired by local companies or joined startups.
