    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent learning systems.
    Solid new product development process.
    Projects that start make it to production.
    Good recognition for creating production parts.

    Cons

    Upper management is not customer and systems focused; most energy is spent looking inside the company. Main result is that project launch late and therefore need huge teams to meet very aggressive cycle times. There is a lot of management interference during projects.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving the new product idea engine. Get more mileage out of each technology/IP platform. Don't launch multiple large projects on a platform until it is ready.
