Testimonials By Prior Metrics Summit Attendees

The material presented by the instructor opens up the big picture for any R&D org. I constantly visualized how I could bring this data into my org and the benefits we could derive from it. Great real time examples to bring back.

-Steve Josué, Manager, Product Engineering, Digital Insight

The instructor's wealth of actual industry benchmarked metrics helped illustrate the value of implementing them.

-Phil Walker, Vice President, Engineering, EF Johnson

The workshop really pulled everything together.

-Patrick Freeman, Manager, Quality Engineering, Respironics

This was a dynamic seminar that really opened my mind to many more ways in which metrics can help my department & my company. Also interesting that many concepts of R&D relate across very different industries.

-Hillary McKellar, Program Manager, Cubist Pharmaceuticals

Could tell that the instructor had practical as well as academic solid knowledge of the subject - this made the class credible - enjoyed it very much + learned a ton - also saw practical application back at the ranch.

-Christine Harris, Controller, Operations, Digene

Pragmatic tools for R&D managers.



-Dr. George Kontopidis, Senior Vice President, Product & Technology Strategy, NMS Communications
Bundled R&D - Knowledge of over 20 years.

-Jakob Kleissl, Financial Controller, Innovation & Platform, Draeger Medical

Summit Location

The seminar will be held at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood, Massachusetts. The Four Points/Norwood is equidistant between Boston and Providence on major U.S. Route 1. One can fly into either Logan Airport in Massachusetts or T.F. Green Airport in Rhode Island, each about a 45 minute ride. (Less expensive airfares are potentially possible through T.F. Green Airport, as well as less traffic congestion en route.) There are several fine restaurants within walking distance, more within a short hotel shuttle ride. A major attraction of this hotel is its food. The General Manager is a former chef and the head chef is a name in the Northeast. "One Bistro," at the Four Points/Norwood, is a locally renowned restaurant and nighttime hotspot. One of New England's largest brand name discount shopping malls is just a short ride south on Route 1.

A block of rooms have been reserved for this conference. Hotel reservations must be made by Monday, November 7, 2005 to ensure availability. GGI's block of rooms will be released back to the hotel after this date.
