For one, it fixes its failed processes with new processes that are also failures. It moves it's management around instead of firing it's failed managers.
Hardly anyone in a leadership role stays in the role long enough to effect change or to advance the processes that promote stability and confidence. A pervasive problem noted by many employees is that their direct supervisor or manager is not attuned to the tasks that their subordinates are doing.
They don't have a sufficient grasp to understand, influence change or control processes that erode our company. We desperately need qualified management running all aspects of our company. Many need to be replaced quickly.
