A Business Lead for (provider) Network Management said about Rick Rietow

" Hi Rick – Thanks so much for sending this out. I wanted to thank you for running such an awesome meeting last week!! We’ve been struggling hard core with the SHPE process for quite a while. Your enthusiasm and knowledge was *so* awesome. It made for a much better meeting and the entire room felt as if we were getting things accomplished – I sincerely appreciate that!!

A Senior PM at NTE said about Matt Ebert

"Matt worked at Northern Tool as a consultant (while working for PCG). Matt did a great job handling multiple roles, sometimes concurrently. Program Admin., Program Coordinator, Project Coordinator, TFS Admin, SharePoint Admin and project manager for several work-streams in a larger program. Matt was pleasant, efficient, effective and great to work with. I would gladly bring Matt in for another contract.

A PM at Cargill said about Amy Blank

"Thank you for all your work on the SAP EHS Canada project. Your organization, time management and follow through have made this project great to be a part of. Hoping to work with you again and that you get to take some much deserved time to relax after go-live. Thanks

A VP at Cargill said about Amy Blank

"Just wanted to reach out to all of you and say THANK YOU for a job well done! The re-designed CAN BOSC Sharepoint site is a MAJOR step forward and the finished product is very impressive! Improved content, better "look & feel", much improved search functionality to name just a few elements. We talk a lot about data and digitalization - and having the right information at our people's finger tips. Now here's an excellent example. I know this team has spent countless hours getting to this point, and after the announcement I already start to pick up some very positive feedback. Yesterday Wendee did an outstanding job taking the CAN BOSC LT through the site and the improved functionality it has. Whether you were involved as a core design team member, a subject matter expert, a content reviewer, an IT consultant or a communications specialist ... this was teamwork and I thank you for that. Your work will allow us to accelerate our BOSC journey, enable us to continually improve and be an effective and knowledgable partner to the business.

Business Systems Manager at Ramsey County said about Molly McClellan

"I really enjoyed your presentation today on human performance factors. It sparked several memories of projects where I wish I had this knowledge! You're such a talented and knowledgeable person. Thanks for being part of our team for the NextGen project.

"Thank you for taking time to answer follow-up questions, clarify additional details and assist in communications for various audiences so we (the OCM team) can make things as easy as possible to understand--for both those heavily involved in the project and for those interested in following the progress and supporting others involved. The PM's insights and candor are invaluable to effective communications. Your partnership is greatly valued!

IT Project Manager at NTE said about Matt Ebert

"Matthew did an excellent job in identifying and escalating risks discovered in the EDI workstream. He quickly helped drive a review of the risks and provided information to the project team that was then in turn able to make a sound decision on how best to proceed. This helped to limit risk and negative impact to the overall project timeline.

Finance Manager at NTE said about Theresa Sarff

"I really appreciate the leadership role you have taken helping address and drive all the open solar winds tickets as well as putting in some recommendation for structure around managing the ownership and closure of these open items. Thank you for all you do.
