Dear Mr. Yezersky:
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your 8-day seminar on The General Theory of Innovation. As you know, Kodak is committed to innovation, lean operating principles, including the use of best practices and standard work. Your approach to systems analysis of problematic situations, forecasting and innovation will soon form the basis of a new best practice here at Kodak.
Already, I have been able to apply the GTI approach to forecasting to predict future trends in the Graphics printing business resulting in the generation of several truly novel product concepts. I look forward to further applications and results from applying your methodology.

The feeding and health care products group of Evenflo, Inc. faced a quite challenging market situation for one of its products in early 2003. Being in the very competitive field, each our attempt to improve the product interfered with our competitors’ patents. That is whenwe asked Mr. Greg Yezersky (Farmington Hills, Michigan) to help us come up with new product ideas.
In one month, Mr. Yezersky delivered up to a dozen of new product concepts. Not only were they patentable, but also a number of them represented principal advancements of our technology state of the art. A combination of these concepts with our own ideas satisfied all the system requirements, was quickly engineered, tested and is in the production right now. We are confident that we will be able to significantly improve our market position after introduction of this improved product.
We would like to acknowledge that our cooperation with Mr. Greg Yezersky has been a success, and we highly recommend services of Mr. Greg Yezersky to any organization striving to improve its product line, market share and ability to compete through application of the General Theory of Innovation, which he has created.

AMERICAN SPECIALTY CARS
General Theory of Innovation (GTI) provides interesting, deep and insightful perspective to more robust systems / product development and system oriented problem analysis and solution. It also supports“set-based” solution approach to product development.
Director of Product Development
Great course! ASC will continue to utilize these processes with our leadership. The application of the learned material to our system and solving the problem that was crucial to satisfying the customer’s requirements is very useful. Thanks a lot!
Manager, Product Development
The course content was excellent and highly applicable! I will immediately utilize it. The content is so good that it is applicable to the set-based method for product development and will help ASC’s efforts for more effective product development process.

JOHNSON CONTROLS INC.
A set of cost-saving measures in excess of$25M (to be achieved over the 5-year program lifespan) was delivered in less than 3 months while we believed that after our own cost-reduction exercises no single cent could be found – what a work! Thanks Greg!

BLACK AND DECKER, INC.
With GTI help we have developed a break through in the power tools segment, and, as a result, we expect significant financial gains.

LIFEFITNESS,A DIVISION OF BRUNSWICK CORP.
We were very skeptical at first about the General Theory of Innovation methodology. Today we are true believers based on real successes, one of which was finding an ideal solution for a waxnozzle-clogging problem that had plagued our high-end treadmills for years.Several solutions have been tried over the years, and none was successful due to cost or derivative problems associated with the solutions. By utilizing the learned concepts, we have developed the Ever Wax solution with almost zero implementation cost. As a result, we are in the process of applying for several patents. Thank you for your services!
Manager, Research Engineering
For my professional objectives, I think it is the most interesting theory I have learned in my life. I am sure that the impact will be great!
