Every business has six critical elements called Morphemes. Morpheme #1 is the Premise (covered in PhilTakes #16-20). Morpheme #2 is the Promise (covered in PhilTakes #21-25). Morpheme #3 is Sidelines (covered in PhilTakes #26-31). Morpheme #4, Guidelines (introduced in PhilTake #40), refers to internal restrictions or limitations that define how a company behaves.
