Working Forums’ projects span a range of industries and types of companies.¬† Among them are producers of consumer products and manufactured goods; chemical, process, and energy companies; medical, pharmaceutical, and medical device producers; and hi-tech and software.¬† Most of Working Forums’ clients are large corporations, but some of my favorite assignments have been with smaller companies, not-for-profits, and entrepreneurial ventures.
