Restructuring does not fix the real issues within Jeppesen - Need a change at the Director Level

Pros

Jeppesen has some very talented, hard working and loyal employees who have contributed greatly to their past success. Also, the corporate office is in Englewood, CO.

Cons

Strong leadership and innovation at the Director level for the most part is non-existent. Directors are more concern about protecting their turf, giving excuses and kissing up to VPs than helping their staff succeed at meeting business goals. Jeppesen talks about being responsive to customers and market needs but their actions do not follow and Directors are not held accountable to produce. If you are able to effectively "spin" and excuse poor or non-performance, you have a great shot at becoming a Director or higher within Jeppesen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you restructure again (which seems to happens every 18-24 months), bring in new Directors and hold them accountable to what they say they are going to deliver.

    Pros

    Always interesting work and good people to work with. Most employees are focused on providing the best products to their customers. Development teams and delivery teams continue to make the effort to go the extra mile to get a good product out the door.

    Cons

    Chaos in the management areas where senior management is trying to implement more cohesive practices. They seem to understand the concepts but not how to implement them. Director levels and some Senior Manager levels seem to be in the 'rotating door' syndrome where processes and practices continue to change every time a management change occurs. Needs more stability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate the processes and practices used to manage development projects from the Directors that control the groups using them. Every time a new Director comes in, the development teams are forced to change to the new Director's favorite processes and practices.

    Also, don't allow Directors to manage their teams remotely. We lost a lot of capability because the Director didn't know our needs and culture.
