Too many management-type books talk about subjective approaches, but with this book (Management 2.0), you’ll acquire objective tools and skills that allow you to attack and improve process issues. Bob Ashenbrenner, President of Durable Mobility Technologies, LLC
The (Management 2.0 book-described) system provides an umbrella process for Quality Management, providing a “how to integration methodology for quality approaches and tools.” Jerry Marnari, Past Chair ASQ
Edwards Deming and other gurus provided great management philosophies; however, the implementation of these techniques in organizations has been minimal. ISO-9001, Baldrige Award, and Shingo Prize provide criteria for acceptance; however, often, “a pass” of these tests is not long-lasting in an organization. This book (Leadership System 2.0) provides a roadmap for the long-lasting achievement of all these programs’ criteria – in one system. L. Pierre de Rochemont, L. Pierre de Rochemont, Founder/GM Frontiernano – Industrialist
Instead of focusing on meeting next month’s arbitrarily set goals, what if companies concentrate on root causes that lead to higher quality and lower costs so that the big-picture benefits? This book (Leadership System 2.0) addresses questions like this with new energy and innovation. Earl Maxwell, Retired CEO of St. David’s Foundation
The one biggest, most important difference IEE offers is the method to simplify the madness. IEE is a process that captures the facts uses the right tools to display the performance facts so anyone can quickly see the performance.

I have been using Smarter Solutions’ materials for a few years now, and I find the information very valuable, it is presented in a way in which I can follow and present it in such a manner that those who I present it to can understand. Forrest himself is very responsive to questions and his staff at Smarter Solutions have always been courteous, engaging, and helpful. It was a pleasure to speak with Forrest as well as his wife, both showing their passion for quality. Forrest not only talks quality, he lives it. Attend one of his workshops and see for yourself! Jesse Stevenson, Quality Director – United Methodist Children’s Home

(IEE Books) gives us the roadmaps to implement business process improvement from a holistic perspective, looking beyond sub-process performance to the level of how the organization as a single system actually performs in reaching business goals. Robert Spencer, ASQ Quality Management Forum Editor
Recently I was at a summit sharing training experiences with a colleague. Mine was by far the better experience. Forrest takes the time to explain the mechanics of it all and the road map is like a blueprint to follow. The tools that he offers are excellent, but more importantly he makes sure you know how and when to use each one. David Dalgard, Quality Assurance
I recently had a discussion with a team from one of the largest consulting firms concerning the scorecards they were brought in to create for our corporation. Their proposal wasn’t even close in value to the IEE approach. What was presented to me were three pages with a smattering of up-and-down, red-yellow-green arrows – for continuous data! And the metrics were a conglomeration taken from all different levels. They couldn’t even tell me what the metrics meant. With the IEE approach my leaders can get information to help them set targets and make decisions . . . and actually pinpoint where to target our improvement efforts. That’s the approach I’m going to drive through my organization. E. M., (at a top 10 pharmaceutical company)
