    Remove unnecessary barriers that are no longer required to perform work. Update current requirements to make sure they are still valid ”things change over time”. Do not forget about risk assessment when making changes.

    Pros

    Opportunities if you ensure to obtain your degrees, have an excellent work ethic, and work well with others under high stress situations.

    Advice to Management

    Carefully think through all aspects of each reorganization, both the direct and indirect costs. Make sure to change-manage each reorganization, and connect all the dots.
