    Global organization offers potential, but lack of leadership and strategic vision will limit that potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the past leadership did not have the skills needed and were to busy worried about their image. Anytime a project was not going well and this was bought to their attention, that person was too negative and not a team player. This became the atmosphere and culture, where senior leadership did not want to hear anything negative about projects, etc. This spread throughout the organization, especially Application Development. Projects would not meet goals and deadlines, and that management passed the buck. This lead to the constant Reorgs or people moving on.
