"Beth gets up to speed quickly, and is able to make an impact on org design right away. She understands how supply chains work, and how to design and align the organization for performance. She sees and understands the direct and indirect consequences of org design. She works with a high level of trust and with a straightforward, direct style."

"Beth's focus on business outcomes was a great asset on our project. Not only did we exceed our original targets but we delivered significant results in a new way. Often projects take on a life of their own and original intent is lost. Beth helped keep us focused on our goals to deliver significant business transformation in rapid fashion."

She is a valued colleague and friend that I would feel confident bringing into any client engagement!"
