John Wetzel Associates is conducting two business-research projects to benchmark specific business practices in high-tech companies. “Changing decision processes” looks at seven decision processes and evaluates how the decision is made and the speed with which it is made. “Strategic planning processes” will catalog the techniques used by companies that do strategic planning and evaluate the comparative effectiveness of their techniques. There is no charge to participate and participants will receive a summary of the interviews and a copy of the final report. Contact Wetzel at 481-3159.
