       ─Harrison M., EVP, Medium-sized global electronics manufacturer

"Thank you for the training.  It was really helpful and powerful.  Since all of our departments have gone through this training, we can benefit
from this experience and methodology.  It will help us to make the company more competitive in the market.
 I can see that my management
team has learned a lot and we should apply it to how we execute our business.

       ─Edward H., EVP, A top 5 bank and one of the largest credit card issuers

"We have all benefited from going through the rigor of this strategy methodology.  
My management team should implement the business as
has been shown here
.  I endorse this approach for our company."

       ─Chairman H., A top 5 regional bank

"The methodology and approaches shown here are
very powerful and convincing.  We have implemented the brand positioning
methodology shown with great success
.  We acquired an insurance company and re-branded it according to the brand aspiration framework
and strategic positioning diagram.  After much effort, we produced a branding campaign which was aligned with our business strategy.  
Ultimately, we were recognized as the winner of a global brand competition among all country CMOs."

       ─Steve O., CMO, A top 3 European-based multi-national financial services conglomerate

"These methodologies and frameworks are very powerful.  It has shown us a new way of thinking.  It has resulted in
enhancements to our
value proposition and strengthening of the functionality
of our product.  We like the rigorous strategy approach."

       ─Founder, A top 5 internet web analytics company

methodology and analytical approaches shown do get to the right answer.  That's what we found after having applied it to our
business.  The tough part was informing the senior management team of the severity of the problem our company had because they were
tired of hearing bad news.  The methodology accurately forcasted losses in excess of $100 million under our old strategy.  We could have
reduced losses even further if we implemented this methodology and strategy sooner."

       ─A Senior Risk Manager, A top 10 U.S. national bank's mortgage division

This has created a lot of value for our bank.  We just received an offer for $600 million for our credit card division.  After implementing the
strategy frameworks for 3 years, we have come from almost nothing to a sizeable business with good value.  We also now have one of the
better known credit cards in our market.  Profitability for this division is also now stronger than that for all other divisions of the bank.  Thank

       ─Yumi H., EVP, A top 10 regional bank

"The approaches shown helped us tie together our affiliate companies with a
better strategy.  We were able to develop a product which
features benefits and a loyalty program covering customer purchases at all our group companies.  We now look at the customer relationship
across the group instead of for just one product.  This has driven cross-selling and also very high response rates on our direct mail drops
due to our ability now to target prospects more effectively and design more relevant offers.  We even had to stop one direct mail campaign
because the response rate was so high!"

       ─Chairman Douglas H., A top 5 financial services company

I really like the strategy pyramid.  This is a great way to represent it and I wonder if you wouldn't mind if I use this with my management
team.  I think you guys did a terrific job in putting this methodology together."

       ─Michael W., CMO, one of the largest mortgage companies in the U.S.
