Jeff is not only the best in the field of unleashing innovation, he also has a heart of helpfulness. He just brought the house down at the Air Force Association’s Innovation Symposium, and now he is offering his amazing skills by helping the USAF set up its Innovation Education effort. Jeff, Staney, you guys are the best, and a grateful Air Force thanks you!”

We got TONS of great feedback on Jeff, his presentation and his work.  The presentation was high energy and simple, yet insightful.  The model presented was very helpful in providing a common language to help categorize, discuss, and — most importantly — create choiceful decisions as to where and how to innovate.”

Jeff was a HUGE success at our meeting! He definitely hit a home run with our attendees and many of his talking points (including the ‘4 colors’) were referenced throughout the entire weekend.  Jeff certainly set the stage for our most successful Matrix Leadership Meeting to date.”

VP, Education and Assessment, American Society for Clinical Pathology

Suzanne Ziemnik, M.ED.

Simply put, Jeff DeGraff’s methods work!  In working with Jeff and his framework to transform various aspects of our business model, it became increasingly clear that he was also subtly transforming me and my team. It’s clear that the step by step process he’s used to transform business, can likewise, be unleashed to re-shape and transform the individual.”

Innovation is a skill, not a gift.  It can be routinized like any other business imperative such as productivity, leadership, or quality.  DeGraff shows you the way.”

Drew Boyd

Director, Johnson & Johnson

“Jeff’s presentation was far and away one of the best that I saw last week. Our team debriefed for quite some time on it and are reviewing how we can implement some of the suggestions.”
