In the wake of the company’s growth, functional managers (who historically supervised product development at Medtronic) were becoming busier and busier with operations, while coordination fell through the cracks. Medtronic had many suggestions for new products but lacked the required focus and attention to get projects done quickly.

Welfare assistance has been around for what seems like forever. It is a great resource for those struggling to get by and keep a roof over their families head and food on the table. Unfortunately there are too many people out there that abuse the system, making it harder for those that actually need the assistance to receive it.
