    "People first, profit will follow" is less apply since the last 5 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce complexity at all level (apply "lean concept" for many of their business processes)
    Focus more on real innovation (not a variation of color and format of exisiting products)
    Reduce total number of management level to 8 or less
    Pay more attention to the selection of their managers (senior director and above) to make sure they are people oriented, not only business oriented.
