Stever, et al,

As of late, Taco Bell's mgmt has reconsidered their ratios and has added
many more managers reducing their span of control. It would be nice if
someone close to the situation could share with us the generic effects of
their "experience." Apparently, through their action, their is an
admission that the higher spans of control failed to function as intended,
I don't know.
