Things are a bit slow. It seems like there is plenty to do, but in fact, I have been spending a lot of time waiting for "trigger events" that will create work, but I'm not complaining. Well, not really.
Project Sinister is, happily, mostly off my plate.
Project Spy looks poised to cause me a lot of combustible trouble, and a bunch of travel, but at present it is just the acidic smell of smoke.
Project Velocity looks like it's been bid up too high, and the bidding hasn't even started.
I have a LBO model on my desktop that I polished up all week, but since we are waiting on more figures from management to test some of the assumptions and flesh out things like working capital, there is very little I can do with it at this point aside from tinker with the LIBOR rate or do an interest rate sensitivity analysis. How many ways can you slice revenue growth into different phases before you are deeply into diminishing marginal returns on your work?
I actually took all the interest rates in the model to three decimal points earlier just to experiment.
It won't last, but for now a bit of a breather is nice to have.
