    Swiss Federal Railways moves Switzerland. It is the backbone of transportation of people and goods in Switzerland. The products and services offered are among the best in the world.

    Swiss Federal Railways is facing a changing business and political climate including looming strategic dangers. It is addressing the increasing complexities it is facing by traditional means which means it is getting more and more complicated internally.

    - Eliminate 1 layer from the hierarchy, 2 layers in the administration.
    - Streamline and simplify the incentive system.
    - Push decision power to the front lines.
    - Use internal capabilities better.
