"Ron Mascitelli provided the motivation to energize our New Product Development process around multidiscipline, co-located platform teams equipped with a new tool box of lean values. Results from these teams included zero slippage for 12 new successful product launches. Cost, quality and performance metrics were all exceeded. Coupling the voice of the customer with a focused discipline to drive out waste and simplify at every stage allowed us to deliver an accelerated product portfolio at a significantly lower investment. Unburdened from waste, innovation flourished."

"At Goodrich Sensor Systems our New Product Introduction (NPI) process adopted the Lean Product Development tools taught by Ron Mascitelli. Not only did we make dramatic improvements in development cost, time-to-market, and customer satisfaction, but we created a positive culture of removing waste in the entire NPI process. After completing Ron's training, each class member helped identify the tools that would have the highest impact on the success of our programs. Goodrich institutionalized these top ranked tools into our NPI process and due to direct employee involvement had the critical mass required to sustain an organizational cultural change."
