FOUNDER AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

GINA BOEDEKER

We believe that you create the best products when you engage consistently and effectively with your target market. Our process is built around this premise. We help our clients across a variety of industries to create innovative and high-quality products and services. We love helping them succeed.


HOW WE WORK

As specialists in qualitative and quantitative market research in education and learning, we use our proven processes to gather data to help you define your target market, know what they care about, and use that knowledge to create best-selling products and services. We expertly craft and execute each project to get the insights you need to meet your precise business needs.


RESULTS-ORIENTED

We’re obsessed about hitting our client’s goals and expectations. We ensure alignment from the beginning of each project, check in regularly, and deliver what’s expected. No surprises.


DATA-DRIVEN

Data is in our DNA. We track everything so we can deliver the most detailed analysis to help your team make the best decisions and devise and execute strategic marketing plans.


FLEXIBLE

Plans change. We get it. Fortunately, we don’t fear change! We expect it, welcome it on arrival, and adapt as needed for each and every project.


TRANSPARENT

We provide our clients with access to real-time progress on all of our activities and communicate milestones regularly.


DETAIL-FOCUSED

The small stuff, when overlooked, becomes the big stuff. We deliver a great experience from kick-off to project-end. We sweat the small stuff (so you don’t have to).

Mel earned her CPA while at EY, a Big 4 global accounting firm and moved to privately held entrepreneurial companies where she knew she’d have a greater impact. Her passion is in helping entrepreneurs achieve their goals and is rooted in the philosophy that success is achieved by having the right financial system in place to deliver timely, strategic insights that empower the entrepreneur’s ability to confidently make key business decisions.

BRUCE ECKFELDT

Bruce has been in business and product strategy for over two decades and knows that truly innovative solutions are driven through the type of market research customer insights that The Boedeker Group delivers to its clients.

Bruce Eckfeldt is a consultant, coach, author, and speaker on organizational development and performance management. Originally an architect, he was a pioneer in the use of computer-aided design and 3D modeling. He later transitioned to software design and development, converting his spatial problem-solving skills to informational architecture and user experience design of digital software products.

Seeing the need for a more fast-paced and innovative approach to technology development, Bruce was an early adopter of Extreme Programming (an early Agile/Lean software methodology). He advanced the field as an early contributor to the Agile Conference and as the founder of Cyrus Innovation in 2003, one of the first Agile/Lean development consulting firms.

After more than a decade of developing products and coaching companies adopting Agile/Lean practices such as Extreme Programming, Scrum, Kanban, and other Lean methodologies, Bruce sold Cyrus in 2014 to focus on broader organizational development initiatives and served as interim CEO, COO, and other executive roles across a number of different high-tech and professional service companies leading these companies through periods of high growth and leadership transition.

Today, Bruce uses his experience as an entrepreneur and Inc 500 CEO to help high-growth companies scale more quickly with less drama. He is an expert in business and operational growth strategy, talent planning, performance coaching, and using Lean/Agile to achieve operational excellence.
