"Dr. Padfield did an outstanding job as the principal researcher for INDOT. He was contracted through your Joint Transportation Research Program, to perform a process improvement and productivity study on our Seal Coat Process (JTRP No 1561). After the study I was able to implement many of the findings and recommendations from the study. We saw a 22% savings ($500) in labor and equipment costs per lane mile of chip sealing. We completed 145 miles of chip sealing in under 6 weeks. The project and implementation has allowed my staff to get projects done quickly and then focus on other activities. Thanks Jon!"
"Jon provided facility-wide risk management training focusing on FMEA as an additional or alternate risk-management tool. The training was provided in three sessions. Session #1 focused on general principles and practices. Sessions #2 and #3 were team working sessions for PFMEA and DFMEA brainstorming and development. Jon’s presentation materials were comprehensive and well-organized. The audiences’ previous experience was varied but the content was interesting enough that regardless of expertise all attendees found the training to be a positive learning experience. The actual FMEA exercises were most informative and proved to be valuable in ensuring uniformity in tool usage across functional areas and teams. I would recommend the training to any organization that intends on using FMEA as a risk-management tool."
"We hired Proffer Brainchild Inc. for Risk Management training. Myself and six others were in the training and all felt that Jon's style was both engaging and informative. I would certainly use Jon and his group for future training on different subjects matters, and, I would recommend Jon and his group to anyone."
"By drawing on his extensive experience, Jon is able to teach and keep his students engaged. I experienced this during his recent Project Management course where he clearly outlined the roles, responsibilities and traits of a successful Project Manager. A pleasure and privilege to get to know Jon."
"Dr. Padfield's Project Management Course was informative and practical. His expertise in the area of Project Management was demonstrated through the application of various work examples. He was concise and articulate. I have been able to effectively used his material when working through projects. I strongly recommend individuals interested in Project Management take this course."
"Jon has been hired by Cooperative Managed Care Services (CMCS) a Third Party Administrator and Managed Care Services Support Company to provide training. His first presentation was an introduction to Six Sigma and quality. We liked him so much that we had him come back and teach a two day class on Project Management for a group of employees. He provided valuable information and group exercises that we not only enjoyed, but have been able to incorporate into our daily work to be more effective and efficient as a team. Jon is so popular with our employees that we plan to have him come back for a refresher class in a couple of months. We also plan have him do more training in the area of Project Management and quality improvement, in the coming months. If you have a chance to work with Jon, you and your employees will be glad you did!" ~ Linda Grosser, Director of Innovation and Quality, CMCS
