"ISM is helping to do some amazing things with VSP. In a matter of weeks, ISM has forced resolution to several key strategic items (e.g., where should an AE spend their time, how much should we focus on the channel, etc), engaged in executive community, and planted the seeds of business transformation (not technology solution) as a commitment towards ICM. And all this with limited time, exposure and materials. I personally thank ISM for the expertise, wisdom and guidance. "
