    - Feeling of being anonymous
    - Requires adaption to IBM-way of doing business - limits creativity and entrepreneurial ideas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Encourage entrepreneurship within the company providing for more and stronger ownership
    2) Establish high-performer units and take the burden of bureaucracy from them, letting them focus on what they can do best: acquire business and carry out successful projects. The client will sincerely appreciate this. Thank you!
