Portland, OR — Cadence Management Corporation has selected Logitech International S.A. to receive its annual Customer Excellence in Project Management award for ten years of continuous improvement in project management.

John Patton, President and CEO of Cadence presented the award to Aldo Bussien, Vice President of Engineering, in Romanel, Switzerland. Patton cited as the basis for the award,

  1. Logitech’s progress in project prioritization and resource loading,
  2. the creation of Logitech’s New Product Development life cycle and associated online control system, and
  3. reductions in time to market ranging from 33% to 51% by product type

“Another key factor in Logitech’s cycle time reduction was its decision five years ago to create an internal position called Director of Fast Cycle Time. This represents a significant commitment to improvement and excellence in project management,” Patton said. He added, “Cadence has always enjoyed working with Logitech, because, after making progress, they always ask what’s next?”

Upon receiving the award, Bussien stated, “Ten years ago, Logitech decided to choose one supplier company and one project management method, world wide. We have virtual project teams with members in Europe, America and Asia, with the project manager in any one of the countries. We have found that the Cadence approach works well in all of these areas. In addition, we value the partnership relationship we have with Cadence and their follow-up consulting to keep our processes on-track and effective.”

Cadence has trained over 1,000 Logitech personnel on 3 continents in 4 locations.
