Kurt believes there has always been a substantial gap between the Technical and Business Professional.  By teaching Technical Professionals how their ideas impact the business bottom line and why speed with accuracy is of utmost importance, and teaching Business Professionals how to best monetize their R&D resources while optimizing quality and innovation, these two groups can understand, and capitalize, on what the other needs to be successful in an organization.
