    Advice to Management

    Management should realize the importance of people and using effective management styles to get the best out of the organization. Just applying fear does not work, neither using outdated Jack Welch practices and fire 10% of the people. Quality of leadership goes a long way, just promoting young guys will not give this company the reforms it needs to remain competitive.
