The reference and link above, Viability, describes that term as it is used in Vibrant Life Company Policy and within the Hubbard Management System.
This Company Policy describes the "Viability Statistic" to now become an important statistic for measuring the overall success of Vibrant life for the long term.
This measurement, however, is from a conservatorship viewpoint, and while of interest to the staff it will be of most interest to the retired Founders.
Expansion and accomplishment of the Ideal Scene would be MOST important, with Expansion measured by VSD, and a new stat needed for the comparison between Vibrant Life and some drug company's sales, selected arbitrarily now in the Ideal Scene as Plavix.
When the Viability Statistic shows the Company close to or below the make-break point, the retired founders, if either still living, may take over the Company for the purpose of improving the Viability Statistic to a continuing level above the make-break point.
Thus, the Viability Statistic is NOT the most important stat in the Company -- the VSD stat is that most important single figure, but the Viability Statistic measures the "risks or decisions taken toward expansion and which succeeded or failed as the Viability Statistic will show along with the VSD.
Long term expansion measured by VSD (thirteen weeks in an affluence trend), while maintaing an improving Viability Statistic over the same period will be grounds for bonuses to the Executive Staff.
When the Viability Statistic shows below the "make-break" point for the second consecutive week, that will be an automatic Company Wide Danger Condition. When and as the Viability Statistic is close to getting below the make-break point, it should have been obvious to one and all and should have been reversed before any second consecutive week could throw the Company into an automaic Company Wide Danger Condition.
Viability the Make Break Point of an Org
I have spotted a new stat which would measure the viability of an org. It is the actual income of the org as plotted against its FP No. 1.
An FP No. 1 should give you the make-break point of the org.
Therefore you can take your GI against your CGI against your make-break point and you can tell whether or not the org is solvent by comparing the two figures.
