    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has been going through a substantial transformation over the past few years as they shift focus to Ag and Industrial Bio-sciences businesses. As this transformation is complete there is a need to align the business structure with these businesses. The bonus structure is not designed well for encouraging top performers. This creates complacency as there is little financial benefit between a poor rating and an excellent rating.
