“[T]he workshops and use-cases made the course a big success…everyone found the course very valuable and I know it will provide consistency to our process mapping going forward.”
— P.T., Mawer Investment Management Ltd., Dec. 24, 2020

“Since working with Howard and Noble Inc, our practice has reduced the amount of re-work on projects and eliminated in-efficiencies in our processes that were causing delays. The most positive aspect has been the continued growth and self-organizing of our analysis community of practice… The knowledge, tools, and practices shared amongst this group is a great value add to our organization.”
— Andre Franklin, Senior Manager, Business Systems Analysis
