    Advice to Management

    Allow the lower level managers and employees to make policy/business decisions
    Hire more people to cover the work
    Allow people to move throughout the company (Regardless of the situation)
    Clean up broken processes (Quit kicking the can down the road)
    Value your employees and their feedback (Stop telling the employee "We can only fix what we have control over")
    Reduce the amount of processes it takes to do the job
    Re-evaluate the current working environment (And act on the 1st Advise I made)
    Get groups working together to accommodate the CEOs pledge of collaboration (Don't just dump the work on one group and call that collaboration)
