    Good focus is places on long term investments. Microsoft has all the tools for success

    Cons

    Playing catch up in many areas. Late to the game with surface and phone etc..
    Lots of meetings, many with little action / ROI

    Advice to Management

    Management could focus on driving less meetings, less tiered approvals and greater immediate accountability.
    More focus on customer needs / asks vs. we will build it and they will come. ( Would help drive faster adoption )
