With a Baccalaureate in Science from Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) and an MBA from NWU’s Kellogg School of Management, his professional experience has focused on process innovation, idea management, and product development. Terrence has a P&L background in capital goods markets with highly engineered-products and services (eg, Honeywell).

He is an expert group facilitator and instructor of workflow processes and Voice of the Market inputs that accelerate commercial success. His engagements have included strategic development, business planning, problem-solving, continuous improvement, organizational design, process design and improvement, customer cognitivity workshops, and market-based product development and launch.
His clients include senior officers and general management among private and public companies, government agencies and community organizations.

Since the end of 1999, Terrence Metz has been a founding principal partner and managing director at Morgan Madison & Company. Through professional and academic endeavors, Terrence has focused on change management and improving group decision-making processes. His CRC publish book “Change or Die: Business Process Improvement Manual” represents his evidence-based decision-making style.

Terrence has taught classes at the Stanford School of Advanced Project Management, the Broad Institute (a Cambridge, MA. based research venture of Massachusetts Institute of Technology [M.I.T.] and Harvard University), Purdue University, University of Arkansas (Sam Walton School of Business), Texas A & M University, and departments of local and federal government, some of which cannot be named.

Terrence is passionate about using and teaching the MG RUSH Professional Facilitation structured technique so that people and teams make more informed decisions. He earned his Six Sigma Green Belt® from Motorola University and wrote or updated all of the MG Rush curriculum. Terrence added enhanced decision-making tools such as Perceptual Mapping and MG Rush’s proprietary quantitative 
SW-OT technique that is used worldwide by Fortune 1000 companies and government agencies. 
He introduced the concept of holism to the field of structured facilitation as a method for keeping discussions on target and aligning deliverables within and throughout an enterprise.

He has taught over three hundred classes and over 2,500 students. His facilitation philosophy aligns perfectly with the MG Rush technique as shown by Dr Wayne Dyer’s statement, 
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Most importantly, Terrence is an effective listener and equally adept at teaching the MG RUSH Professional Facilitation classes as well as facilitating consensus around important and challenging issues for groups, organizations, and teams.
