Like sharks getting the scent of reorganization blood, upper management wasted no time in restructuring the Red team into 4 Captains, led by 2 Managers, reporting to 1 Senior Director with a dotted line to the rower.

Currently the Red team management is having a new boat designed;
and to demostrate fiscal and HR dexterity for stockholders they also outsourced the rowing to India.
