The main thing that I've seen is more focused decision making from senior management. That is "above my pay grade" as they say, but it seems as if there is a much more objective process propelling management choices. The upside, aside from the expected direct benefit, of this is that it feels as if there is less overt rivalry between departments (read between department heads). My impression is that to some degree infighting over subjective issues at upper levels has lessened because management is able to focus on more ascertainable facts instead of speculation. I can't speak about it from a C-level persepective, though...at least not yet!
