    for your thoughts. My feathers are not easily
    ruffled and I appreciate conficting ideas as long as they
    are thoughts and not reactions. However, I have
    watched this company for quite some time now and have
    seen this staffing, morale issue come up several
    times. Yes, bottom line is more important than
    "percieved" moral. The fact is that if the company is
    achieving its financial goals, it is doing well. If moral
    reaches a point it is a detriment to the bottom line,
    then steps need to be taken. However, with respect to
    CBR, they are in the process of a changeover of
    skillsets. In addition to layoffs and terminations there has
    been hiring as well. Management expects at 30-35%
    turnover rate in employees to facilitate this demographic
    change in skillsets towards the new e-business. This was
    addressed in the last conference call. I'm sure many
    employees getting layed off are not happy. However, for
    every disgruntled employee who posts on this board,
    there is a happy one to respond. I don't work for CBR
    at all, however I am a stockholder. Sometimes
    companies have to downsize to remain profitable, that is a
    fact of business. However, if earnings continue to
    grow at an excess of 20%/year this is good.
    Furthermore, I am now interested in Agilent and the ASP
    business. The ASP market is projected to grow by
    billions/year for the next several years. CBR is well
    positioned to capture a significant portion of this market
    share. The bottom line is that they are moving in the
    right direction and that ERP software is a necessary
    and growing portion of our economy. As things get
    more interdependant and B2B plays a more central role,
    then outsourcing and consultancy will become more
    prominant as well. One just has to take a longer term view.
    This is all IMHO and I would like your response to
    these ideas if you don't mind. Best of luck to you and
    others on this board.
