iQ Company


"Dr. Craig Kaplan, and his team from iQ Company, consulted with the Los Angeles Unified School District from February 26, 1999 through June 30, 1999. Despite a short time frame, the Superintendent and I set three very ambitious objectives for the consulting effort:

  1. Assess the information needs of all stakeholders in the Los Angeles Unified School District ranging from parents and teachers to top administration officials and members of the Board of Education.
  2. Design preliminary specs for a web-based system that would meet these information needs, and then develop a detailed Request for Proposals that could be sent to vendors.
  3. Help LAUSD conduct a RFP bidding process and evaluate proposals from major vendors like IBM.
Thanks to iQ Company's innovative web-based assessment software, and to Dr. Kaplan's talented team, all objectives were accomplished ahead of schedule and below budget. Moreover, the quality of the work was outstanding -- far surpassing our initial expectations! In my more than twenty years professional experience, both as a consultant for a major consulting firm and as Los Angeles Unified's Chief Administrative Officer, I have rarely seen such outstanding performance from a consultant. I enthusiastically give Dr. Kaplan and iQ Company my highest recommendation."

"At AT&T we have used the iQ software to assist AT&T Language Line Services in applying for a California Baldrige-based award and on a national team that created an improvement plan for CMS, a large division of AT&T. At Language Line, the software was a critical component of our success, allowing teams to write the application efficiently and helping us input the right information for each Baldrige item. It also made the review and editing process much easier, connecting all the writers and pulling together all the information the team collected electronically. 

For the national team, the iQ software was modified to meet our need to simplify the Baldrige National Quality Award application and create interview questions based upon the Baldrige criteria. We interviewed many executives across CMS and through the software we pulled the interviews together, analyzed them and made recommendations for improvement which were well received by the leadership of the division.

To help us revise the application to serve our needs, the iQ folks were creative, adaptable and innovative."
