The speed of sharing with the information was not efficient to meet the crossing of the boundaries (Evans, 2007). Owing to this, the empowerment can enable the railway system to be dependent on the companies that were working towards the common areas. This leads to the problem of inefficient communication that had risen from the cross boundaries. Additional to this, issue of communication aggravated the existing situation. There is no sharing of the information between the different employees in the train operating companies. There are a number of safety supervision that had occurred between the problems of overlapping of the duty and the unclear boundaries. Since the government was not the original owners of the railway, the supervision of the railway dependent on the privatization. The Network rail was in a situation of monopoly that dependent on the external constitutes after the privatization. A combination of these factors led to the poor performance led to death. The allocation of the job duties and the responsibilities of the people were nebulous. This clouded the people from operating and performing the requisite work that is needed. The supervision and regulation of the safety standards started to reduce owing to the overall process to be impacted. There were different entities that had greater autonomy and latitude. These created a situation where a reduced risk that focused on the concerning of the supervision and the factor of unclear boundaries. A combination of these factors had led to the scandal.
To summarize, the company needed to have had proper internal governance, clarity in communication, accountability, transparency and empowerment of the employees. Lack of oversight and continual process improvement leads to the scandal that killed 7 people. All the stakeholders who were involved with the company were impacted by this process (Jeffcott et al., 2006). The recommendation has been proposed in the following section to explain about the ways for the company to overcome the odds.
To reduce the corporate feature of the company, the Network Rail needs to maintain the competent standard of inspection (Santos-Reyes, Beard and Smith, 2005). These can be incorporated into the whole industry to learn about the improvement. The companies need to develop own procedure and guidance to improve the system. These can result in the reduction of the risk of the stakeholders. These needs to be developed based on the subjective nature of the guidance of the company. This will play an essential role in the improvement of the safety standards. They play an essential role where the staffs for different companies need to improve the deficiency of railway。
