Throughout my professional career I've had the privilege of working with many talented people. The results of these relationships have been rewarding, not only for the pleasure of working side by side with these individuals to accomplish common goals, but also for the wisdom, experiences, and guidance these individuals have shared with me. The Knowledge and lessons I learned from these people have been a major influence in my continuing career and were instrumental in enabling me to write this book. To these individuals I am eternally gratful.
I also wish to extend a special note of gratitude to Dale Jensen, my mentor and former manager, for his continued support and work in the area of improving product development processes. Dale's wealth of experience, coupled with his vision for the future of product development, was the inspiration of many of the ideas presented in this book.
