"As our National Trust Integration project has completed, I wanted to thank you and your team for your dedication and significant contribution to the project 's success. This was the largest, most comprehensive undertaking of the bank and to quote our Senior Vice President after his wrap-up meeting with bank senior management, we hit a bases loaded, out of the park, home run. Much of our success was due to your leadership, in particular, your planning and organizational skills and your ability to manage multiple deliverables by setting expectations and priorities. We also appreciated your knack for keeping us focused for the intense 20-month duration."

Project Measures is a privately held company, located in Whitby, Ontario. Its principal, Ralph Kuhn, is a recognized specialist in the field of project management.

Before joining Project Measures Inc., Ralph was a Vice-President at Parker Project Management. His strong communication skills, and diplomatic nature, made him a valuable team member on projects that required detailed planning and coordination. He led ScotiaBank's project planning and control efforts during the very successful merger with National Trust. Ralph excelled at applying previously honed scheduling principles (Science) to successfully quantify and manage progress for an internal client. Like all change projects, the real test during the bank merger was in negotiating and managing stakeholder expectations (Art) to ensure overall success. The successful result of this highly publicized merger is a credit to his abilities.

Previous to his term with Parker Project Management, Ralph spent 7 years with Eastern Construction Company Ltd.. During this time he made key contributions to the construction of a number of large projects in Toronto. In addition to new construction, Ralph's experience also included business change and systems projects.

An exceptionally challenging example was the 18-month, $25 Million facility enhancement at Commerce Court for Eastern Construction starting in 1992. Ralph's responsibilities included building a new operations center and concurrently maintaining overall project schedule control for fire alarm, building controls, security, life safety and HVAC upgrades to the occupied 2 million sq. ft. complex.
