    Poor communication through the chain of command. Insufficient tools, documentation, resources, to address maintenance issues. Managers failed to provide needed assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and direct with your employees. Provide them the resources to achieve the company goals. Don't expect a great deal without management support behind the effort.
