"The company's main objective should be to change only when market direction changes. Company culture is a myth. Only profitability matters."

"Small to mid size companies (0-500 employees) I do not think need a person in this role. However, do need to have senior officers to review the company's direction and inherent culture, which can change due to mid level management and hourly employee turnover."

"Should be the role of the CEO or President"

"If they can afford it?"
