I knowKatherine verywell: She wasastudentduring2013-14 inthe SofaerInternationalMBA program at Tel AvivUniversity,aprogramI direct. Katherine isbothverysmartand highlymotivated. She wasa verygood studentinourprogram. She workswell andintelligently,bothbyherself andingroups. She has original ideasandknowshow toset themforthand implementthem. Ibelieve thatthese traits indicate thatKatherinewillbe asuccessful candidate fora Fulbrightresearchgrant,capable of makingan impactthroughherresearch. Professionally,Katherineiswell preparedforherpositionasinvestigatorbasedonherpastexperience conductingresearch.She hasworked withThe Universityof Chicago, investigatinghow USindicators affectCEO payin the UK, and alsowithOverlake Hospital inSeattle,evaluatingthe efficiencyof Cordis stentsinCarotidarteryprocedures.Herexperience witheconometricanalysisandtrainingonthe use of programssuch as Stata and R, usedto performeconomicandstatistical analysis,suggestthatherwork will meetinternational standardsforanalysis.More generally,herwork onstrategicdevelopment with entrepreneurialgroupsinIsrael,andonrural communitydevelopmentinAfricaandHonduras demonstrate hercapacityforcreative andsustainable problemsolving.Inshort,Ibelieve herpast professionalexperiencehaspreparedherwell toreceiveaFulbrightResearchgrant. Furthermore,Katherine workedwell withpartnersfrommanylanguage andcultural groupsduringher time withthe SofaerInternationalMBA program. I believe herability toworkwithleadersfromawide range of contextscomesfromthe value Katherineplacesonlistening andherabilitytocommunicate. Katherine willbe anassetas a representative of the Fulbrightprogramnotonlybecause of herabilityto effectivelycommunicate,butalsobecause of herabilitytolistento,andto sympathize with the causes of others.
  2. 2. The Fulbrightprogramthat Katherine will be involvedin—researchconcerningthe implementationof leanmanufacturingmodelsinthe textile industryinGuatemalaand Honduras—strikesme asa worthwhile idea. Leanmanufacturinghasbeenimplementedinmanypartsof the world;itiscapable of highimpactchangesparticularlyinlabor-intensiveindustriessuchasthe textile industriesindeveloping countries. InHonduras´context,the researchagendaKatherine wantstopursue isimportant because of the degree of competitioninthe regionandthe effectthiscompetitionhasonthe healthof the textile industryandmore generally,the Honduranlabormarket andeconomy.Byinvestigatingsolutions to improve operational efficiencyinHondurantextile factories,thisresearchhasthe potential to affect the textile industrydomestically andinternationally. InadditiontoitscontributioninHonduras,this researchwouldaddto the bodyof literature onleanmanufacturinginitsprovisionof acase study for implementationin LatinAmericancountries, which the existingbodyof research failstoaddress. I thinkKatherine will be anoutstandingresearcher/implementerforthisproject,andI recommendher veryhighly. Sincerelyyours, Prof.SimonBenninga Prof.of Financial Economics Director,SofaerInternationalMBA program Tel AvivUniversity
