This is the way I would like to se things being delegated. I quite old
and well proven way of doing it.

We are in reality down to 5+ persons at times and this is not enough at
the moment.

We are getting the the Advisory Board more involved and the technical/or
embedded devices group started so we are quite busy.

If we do not get two more persons on the board, I think that we risk
that the busy persons step down, and we will get the good new persons on
board any way, but at the risk of loosing continuity and experience. It
takes a little while before completely new board members get the feeling
of how things are being done and which things must be taken care of
first to get the business running. ( I am here talking of book keeping,
accounting and financial insight and overview.)
