There's a lot of work ahead of making change

"At end of the day, what we have to have is an organisation that we can manage better. It needs to be simpler. It needs to be more insightful. It needs to be faster. It needs to be more integrated. So that we can do more with less, faster. That is all about change in our expectations, change in our technology, change in our reporting so that we can deal with more. There are initiatives de jour, and what we want to do is grab one that stays with us, improves our environment, improves our cash flow, improves our profitability, but ultimately makes our jobs easier and more effective. Without that, life is just another day. Let's try to make it a little bit better quality".
