Testimonials"Just wanted to say thank you one more time for this year's excellent Stern Consulting Corps program. We have never had an SCC team that was less than outstanding, but I have to say that this year's group--Chelsea, Brian, Tim --was exceptional. The level of business sophistication and technical expertise that they all displayed by the end of the project was just amazing--and truly of critical importance to the institute as it pursues spinning off or partnering with a for-profit entity, the subject of this year's proposal.
We actually had an hour and a half readout of the team's final report prior to the finale. As I watched Paul and Myrvin and saw their reaction and frequent nods of agreement, I could tell that what the Stern Team was saying was having an impact and was either confirming or refuting many issues and strategies that the two of them have been wrestling with for some time. As I told the team, based in large part on things that happened during the course of this project and new information that became available to me during our checkpoint meetings, I feel more confident and optimistic about the future of the institute than I have for a long time.
Thanks, too, to our team's honest assessment of some of the issues that they felt were beyond the scope of this year's project, I think I have enough grist to start putting together a proposal for next year. So, you'll be hearing from us again."
