You may even consider it appropriate to criticise them in your conclusion / learning points summary.

(iv) Don't describe your case study in too much detail. Give the reader only sufficient detail to help them understand the key issues.

You may even care to comment critically as to how the organisation should change and provide recommendations but this is not essential. Personal reflection is essential however.
