    Not much news here, disfunctional and mediocre Board of Directors, averaage senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the overhead & management fat. Eliminate &/or reduce the Business Groups & Units stovepipes. Allocate more resources to innovation and customer facing resources.
