If one draws different lines in a circle, one gets many ‘Ts’. The ‘Ts’ represents truth, and if one stand at one point in a circle, he/she will see only that version of truth. But to get a holistic picture, one has to travel along the circle and look at different Ts, i.e. Truth. In corporate context, it symbolizes at looking things from a larger perspective and then handling the complex business problems.
