“Dawn balances both the strategic vision of the intended results of a given change as well as a detailed understanding of what it will take to engage and educate end-users in order to make change stick. Dawn demonstrated time after time that she really understood the strategic direction the organization was trying to go with our JD Edwards implementation. She asks the right questions, at the right time in the process to make sure that the big picture results are achieved. On the other hand, Dawn took a very high-touch, detail-oriented approach to working with the subject matter experts and end users in the preparation of training materials. Her relationships with individuals across the business were excellent; she was able to establish rapport with all levels of the organization. She developed extremely high-quality, effective learning materials, despite the high degree of change to the system right up until the end of the project. Beyond this, Dawn is an absolute pleasure to work with. She maintains an even keel despite the tension or drama that might be swirling around her. She demonstrates a commitment to the project, and is genuinely willing to take on whatever is necessary to achieve the outcome. She is very good a articulating and solving problems, flexible and able to handle many different work streams at the same time.”
