It all depends…will he have the authority to hire, fire and move things around? If he does not, he is doomed. You can’t fix things with one hand (or even two hands) tied behind your back. He has added pressure in that he has only about 2 years to turn this monstrous problem around.
If we really want the VA system fixed, CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT MUST MAKE SURE THE NEW HEAD HAS REAL AUTHORITY, NOT PRETEND AUTHORITY. It is not fair to him (or to our vets) to not give him the tools he needs for such a serious task.
