"I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for yesterday’s webinar. It was excellent. It provided great insight into everything that needs to be considered when trying to measure the “cost” of efficiency and even better insight into what the decision makers are looking at when they decide to kill programs that on the surface appear to be working."
