Testimonials

  • “The Barney Advisory Group, and particularly Howard Lutz, provided important research and insight into a potential new market in the area of graduate business education. The research was focused on precisely the key elements that we needed to better understand in order to inform our decision. The work was timely and cost effective and Howard was a pleasure to work with.”
    Dr. Thomas E. Garvey, Director, Accounting MBA Program, Baldwin Wallace University
  • "Functional competency and cultural compatibility were two key qualifiers in selecting The Barney Advisory Group to manage the vertical startup of our extensive capital expansion project. I needed someone to provide oversight over the tactical execution of thousands of tasks by eleven functional streams, to document assumptions and concerns, and to follow-up and close any loose ends. The Barney Group not only provided the control needed, they were also in a position to raise flags if they perceived disconnects between the streams or with agreed upon assumptions. Although functional competency is important, it is critical to have a company that fits your culture, creates rapport with the stakeholders, and earns your people’s respect. I got peace of mind pretty early on after Chris starting managing our project, and that says a lot."

  • I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Chris Barney in the early part of 2014. I immediately became aware that Chris was very knowledgeable, strategic and organized. His perspective is refreshing, and his ability to provide information and insight in the healthcare space is imperative! Chris can effectively organize large scale initiatives while working smarter to keep his "finger on the pulse" of this ever changing industry. As a result, Chris is open to change, improvement, and collaboration. He is comfortable communicating with organization leadership, while remaining motivating and motivated. I look forward to more great work by the Barney Group and our continued collaboration.

  • "Christopher Barney, Baldwin Wallace Health Care MBA Class of 2011, and Howard Lutz, Baldwin Wallace Health Care MBA Class of 2012, are examples of the Baldwin Wallace philosophy.  Both gentlemen have continued to apply the theories taught into a practical reality with their organization’s development and progress.   As not only Program Director of the Health Care MBA, as well as professor, it was a privilege to have both of them in class and to watch their interaction and leadership skills develop within their teams as well as within the entire class.  They have “talked the talk” and “walked the walk” and still are.  Both gentlemen were well respected within their classes and they have become well respected community leaders.   Baldwin Wallace is proud to count them among the MBA alumni and wish them continued success in all endeavors."
