    Talent level in Sales has dropped massively due to comp and management issues
    Scorecards far too tactical and driving the wrong behaviors - GM's gaming the system
    Dynamics Teams never should have been mainstreamed. Different business and different type rep needed to articulate vision. SFDC still winning all strategic deals unless MSFT buys the deal!
    Middle Management under qualified

    EPG needs massive rebuild.
    Place focus on customer and not managing ones own career each day
    Have courage

    Work out yesMen/Women - Way too many of these.
    Break out teh Dynamics business so they can be more Agile and Strategic
