I had the opportunity to see the impacts of Gila’s work in my role as HL7 Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) Workgroup Co-Chair, where Gila was brought in to help facilitate a particularly challenging security-related project. Her impact was nearly immediate. In addition to keeping the overall group on-target in terms of their objectives and deliverables.
Gila had a way of making those around her more productive. She brings the best of facilitation, project management, and interpersonal techniques. The net result of her involvement was unquestionable. That project enjoyed a productivity I have not seen since, its members had higher satisfaction, and as a leader I had full visibility into the activities and confidence in their execution. I have no hesitation in recommending Gila and the work that Cognaissance does.
