By transforming the pursuit of excellence from a hit-and-miss endeavor to an easily achievable and sustainable continuous endeavor, CIBIC creates value where other systems fail. By addressing gaps, disconnects, and chaotic realities at a fundamental level through the sustained use of frameworks, methods, and analytics, CIBIC promotes the pursuit of excellence across the wide range continuum, eradicating the value and philosophical disconnects that generally plague individuals and collective interests.

This book addresses this systemic problem by highlighting an incredibly comprehensive system that promotes continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence. By highlighting key inner drivers, essential outer qualities, and supporting models and frameworks, the book makes the pursuit of excellence an easily sustainable and logical endeavor.
