I have known Ori Kopelman for years from
his project management classes at two of my previous companies.
When a project at my current company ran into trouble I had
the project manager call in Ori to help get the program on
track. Ori met with the team for a three day off site and,
applying QRPD methods, they were able to redefine and organize
the project into a form which would meet the deadline. The
team executed to the plan generated at the offsite and met
the aggressive goals. Ori and his methods were key to this
program being successful.
