, Chair, Engage Works: I didn’t communicate enough with the PE House; you think you can bury things that aren’t going according to plan.

, Senior Relationship Manager, Criticaleye: When you identify under-performance, you need to respond quickly by getting the right people, structures and strategy in place.
, former CEO, Redcentric: Before we got too deeply into the strategy of the business, we just had to do something, because heads were down; we’d lost energy within the company and people had lost their belief in it.
