    Pros

    Availability of tools, great people and ability to move across the organization. The upcoming changes in the management and culture combined with the new direction of the company seem very promising

    There are a number of silos across the company and it is a challenge to remove these barriers to facilitate high perfromance.

    Advice to Management

    David leadership and his team are doing some really good work. But more needs to be done to change management culture in Operations. Often it appears that Enterprise & Govt is driving the company.
