In May, Brian returned to Sweden to visit and advise Umetrics, a division of MKS Instruments, a long-time client of Brian Vogel Consulting. The mission this time was to investigate and correct deficiencies in how Umetrics runs projects internally, shares information among the staff and reports status to management. Changes were worked out with the Umetrics staff and new processes are now in place and used throughout the company. Brian continues to be involved with MKS/Umetrics in weekly management calls.
In March, Brian had the pleasure to meet up again with Matt Haggerty, Founder of Product Genesis and now President of DCI Engineering. It was great to reconnect with Matt, a long time friend and colleague. Hopefully, we can find new ways to work together once again.
