    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.
