This research demonstrates organizations with a long-term track record of successful design systems of leadership with a unique leadership DNA and then trains every leader to its requirements.

He is certified as a Lean Practitioner, Balanced Scorecard design, Strategic Planning, group facilitation, and Project Management. In addition, he is a senior examiner for the Baldrige Quality Award.
