While each of these structural modifications has generally improved the operating performance of Appex for a short period of time, ultimately each different structure has introduced a new set of inefficiencies and barriers that constrained the innovation, performance, and growth of the company.

Without major modifications that bring its operating behaviors in line with its vision and goals, its success in the marketplace is in question.
