    “It is a pleasure to work with The Rhythm of Business! They have been our partners in establishing alliance management within Astellas, growing the collaborative ability of our organization, and supporting us in expanding our influence. They are always there for us, no matter the challenge.”

    “The alliance restructuring was overdue and your research and guidance provided the catalyst for change. Thank you—I’m not sure I could have convinced our alliance partner of the need for change and the right structure without your insight.”

    General Manager, Business Development
    Canada Post

    “We used your presentation on Portfolio Management to develop our own portfolio management metrics at SAS. Your scoring methodology was most helpful in determining a weighted scoring algorithm for our measures. It’s an excellent way for us to assess status of current partnerships and to set objectives for future direction with partners. We’re also using this work as a foundation for our next step in the process—determining coverage models. Thanks again for your insights!”

    Global Alliance Director
