    Pros

    ITW is made up of a lot of SMBs, each with relative autonomy on managing the business (with P&L targets.) No command and control from the top lets the business focus on what they know rather than having the suits calling the shots.

    Cons

    Fortune 200 company trying to function like a 200 employee company. The mindset of how to get things done doesn't scale at all when tackling large efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be some balance between centralization and decentralization in order to scale beyond where ITW is today.
