    Pros

    Futuristic, innovative, fast pace, people friendly. A lot of work was done in the shotest possible time. Bright future was ahead of all of us.

    Everything went wrong starting with market analysis, cost of manufacturing, breaching many international patents, knowingly or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decision making at highest level has to be done with cool heads, not just enthusiasm.
