When things aren’t working talk to the people doing the work: I have rarely encountered a business challenge that could not be best solved by those doing the work. If you really spend time with people doing the day to day work within a function that is underperforming they have the answers. Some may resist change and try to obstruct it, but you can always find a few to help architect a better solution.
