The first time I took Sharpen the Focus was back in the 1980's when I was head of research at AT&T. I didn't have a thorough qualitative marketing research background and needed to learn as much as I could. I had seen Sharon moderate focus groups and do team building work for my organization at AT&T and was very impressed, so when I found out they were offering Sharpen the Focus, I took it. It was a significant learning experience. The course gave me additional skills I needed to run a market research organization and a greater appreciation of qualitative research. I was so impressed, I had them design a customized version for my staff at AT&T. Subsequently, I also took the advanced course. And, I have recommended it to many others.
