“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.”
