Service Testimonials


"I’ve never been a part of a “built-from-scratch” project like this but I can tell you that I’m very glad this has been my first experience! You were the reason I thought it worked so well. You were able to balance and manage the work that needed to get done while keeping it fun and something to look forward to." 
-- Project Team Member

"Danette is one of those rare individuals who can combine both task and people focus such that the right things get done on time, and those working with her enjoy the process and the interactions." 
-- Project Sponsor. High-Tech Manufacturing Organization

"What worked well in my opinion was, of course, we were a GOOD TEAM!! We did work well together but I think the role you played was crucial. Initially, we were not sure how this project was all going to come together and weren’t exactly sure of what we needed to do or what was expected of us. You quickly brought this into focus by laying out your framework for us." 
-- Project Team Member

"You did an excellent job of keeping us on schedule and driving us to a consensus, as needed. I appreciate the work that you did on your own to jumpā€start the modules and associated discussions. That was a big help! You also did a great job of questioning us and pushing us to think an area through. It was a good team effort!" 
-- Program Manager
