The company decided to trust David’s judgments. While it normally took 8-12 months to develop a test-unit, David had one in less than 45 days. Not only did he reduce the development time, but he also improved the product’s design, build, and usability, and eventually the design won awards. Because we encouraged them to trust him, he was able to improve the product’s efficiency and increase the company’s financial success.
When the competition saw David’s achievements, they tried to extract and place him in their own development groups. Because we developed a relationship between him and his company, David remained loyal to his employers and continued to innovate for them.
