"I wanted to say thank you to Dick E. on so many levels! (1) for an awesome job on the templates and user guide – HUGE success!!! (2) for putting up with my crazy thoughts – no easy task. (3) for getting up oh-dark-early to share with our team – sorry! And most importantly for making me look good to my boss – he called me after and was tickled pink with everything!"

"Just wanted to let you know how pleased our bid team was with the support we received from Jeff S. on our Task Order responses. The concept of operations designs he provided for both projects were easy to understand yet complex enough to cover the SOW. Jeff was a pleasure to work with and is well liked and respected by the whole team. We would be very happy to engage him in the future whenever the need arises again. We know that SMA is the place to turn for high caliber proposal help."

“I want to extend my thanks to the SMA graphics folks (Lori C. and Jeannie W.) for their tireless support on the proposal. Typically, proposals are a major impact on my team resulting [in] complete disruption to our normal workflow while forcing my team to work many weekends. In fact, their great work has reduced that significantly. [The proposal] graphics has been seamless with minimal impact. In short, Lori and Jeannie have been rock stars who are doing an incredible job. Thank you!”
Program Planning & Controls
“Tim did a fantastic job of taking the previous schedule, and completely redoing it such that it finally made sense and was in sync with the schedule from my subcontractor. Tim attacked the effort with enthusiasm and software tool knowledge unlike any I had received from the combined efforts of all previous planners that had attempted to create a working schedule for me. Tim worked very well with our subcontractor's planner to get the needed data and his resulting schedule was accurate and timely.”
Program Management
“Greg S. is working out very well. So far, he has shown that he has exactly the background and skills that we need. He is also a delight to work with.”
Program Management
“Melissa W. is a valued member of my team. She is professional, determined, proactive and creative with her project management assignments. I am able to rely on her projects being well-managed and know that I will only be engaged when needed. Melissa handles her team well, her project management duties well and is an excellent communicator. She escalates effectively, and when she has a communications difficulty, she contacts me for guidance and support. I’m glad to have her on my team.”

"I wanted to sing Elisca S.'s praises to you. She is an amazing asset to our team; she clearly knows her stuff when it comes to planning, she drives the team to get their tasks done and she holds the team accountable. She’s fantastic at pulling together who she needs to get the right answers and leads all of us through monthly EV, rolling wave, etc. I’m very grateful we have her for all her hard work, week night and weekend efforts to support the team. She’s very deserving!"

On Wednesday, 6 July 2017, an SMA client hosted an event in honor of Steve H.’s 17 years of continuous support to [one of their major programs]. We believe Steve’s 17 years is an SMA record for continuous deployment to a client. The client cited Steve’s ability to “make a positive impact” on all of his assignments on [that program].

"I do want to express my sincere appreciation for Carol M's work with our team. We have no in-house experience in this area and she was incredibly patient with us, returning to first principles and being thorough and deliberate. I really enjoyed the experience and am grateful to both Carol and SMA."

Elisca S. has been doing an outstanding job. I gave her one of our toughest programs, one that was on the CEO’s watchlist, and she has made significant contributions to getting them ‘out of the red.’ I consider her one of the top planners in our product line and trust her with overseeing the training of a new hire. She has been my go-to for providing backup support and has helped a number of programs get on track where they were struggling. She is a really a credit to SMA’s excellence!”
