Although I am in charge of overseeing operations, each worker is responsible for his own accomplishments; it is the worker him/herself who feels he has to carry out the work with a professional attitude.

A production system entirely based on subcontracting and the availability within the district of complex and expensive machinery that can be utilized only for a fraction of their saturation time, lowers entry barriers. The low level of vertical integration and, paradoxically, the small dimensions highlight the competitive advantage of the adversaries.
