"Our project managers do all the things you'd expect from most project managers in that they maintain all of the artifacts related to status, scope, budget, and schedule, but they are also very much a part of the people-part of the equation. They are highly involved with the software developers and designers as well as the key customer stakeholders."1

- Richard Sheridan, President & CEO, Menlo Innovations, in 2005.

"Flexibility is a strategy. We don't have flex options. We have a culture which embraces flexibility, for both employees and customers."2

- Richard Sheridan, in 2007.

"His (Sheridan's factory) is quite remarkable. There are no private offices, conference rooms, doors, cubicles, desks, or interior walls. Rather, the building is light and airy with brick outer walls and long aluminum tables with an open ceiling. Teams are paired for specific projects. And once the project is completed, new pairs are created."3

- Ken Rogers, Executive Director, Automation Alley4, in 2007.
