engaged Ron Person to assist us with our Balanced Score Card
project and in this regard, Ron assisted us remotely to get the
project launched, then he visited us in Perth for a period of 6
weeks where he facilitated intensive workshops.
His facilitation was superb and
we achieved in that 6 weeks what would have normally taken many
months. His style was comfortable and
engaging yet he drove the agendas to achieve the desired
to say, his contribution to our Balanced Score Card project has
been significant and he was well regarded by all those attending
the sessions. Ron remains engaged
with us, now remotely to facilitate and assist us concluding the
project and in the development of the dashboard

Iíve had the opportunity
to work with many consultants and facilitators in my career, and
Ron Person goes right to the top of my list of the most
effective. In fact, itís not fair to Ron to refer to him as
a facilitator, as heís really more of a learned guide, humble
educator, process cop and teammate. Most importantly, he
added true value to our project. Itís an understatement
to say that we never would have attained the results we did had
it not been for Ron. Iíve referred him to colleagues at
other companies and look forward to working with him again.

Your guidance helped us
through the sometimes difficult process of developing a
strategic plan. Not only did we capture the widely diverse
needs of our stakeholders, but we produced an executable plan in
record time. We have a clear vision of what we will
become and we know exactly what we must do to get there.
The ways in which you involved
everyone, from citizen advocates to executives and then captured
their inputs were excellent. Your process distilled a wide range
of ideas into the precise strategic directions we need.
Some strategic planning processes
are little more than pointless exercises that end up on a shelf.
This plan is one we know how to execute.

Your presentation was valuable. The
methods you showed us could easily increase supply chain and
operations performance. Your use of the giant "sticky wall" and
the interactive exercises was very refreshing. Everyone had to
pay attention. They were all involved!
