Innovation Guide:
Leading new product development (NPD) teams in innovation best practices across all phases of the stage gate process. I have led hundreds of teams through the creative problem solving process at The GYM, P&G’s design studio in West Chester, Ohio. These highly customized experiences draw on best practices from NPD, team facilitation, and Cognitive Science.

Product/Process Development:
I created a series of popular workshops focused on new product development at P&G, training thousands of managers across P&G’s diverse business units and regions. These workshops and related tools provide a common language and framework for innovation, fostering collaboration across P&G’s diverse business units and regions.
