My team greatly benefited from the measurement strategy planning session that Karen conducted. She provided us a good roadmap to work on. Without our measurement strategy document, we would simply be talking theoretically. The strategy work helped everyone to get on the same page and will allow us to chip away at our entire measurement plan more effectively Karen was very customer-focused, knowledgeable, timely, and thorough in her approach.
