Glenn Mehltretter
Founder and Chairman

Glenn Mehltretter, founder and chairman of PeopleFit, established his management consulting firm in 1981. His engineering background led him to appreciate Requisite Organization's predictive, consistent, and reliable approach to organizational engineering. Since 1991, Glenn's work has focused upon translating Requisite Organization theory into practical managerial leadership tools and cutting edge managerial training. Glenn had the pleasure of Elliott Jaques' friendship and tutelage as he developed his RO application tools.

Because of his expertise, Glenn has been invited to consult, speak, and train internationally regarding Complexity of Information Processing Direct Observation, Assessing Organizational Integrity Using RO Criteria, and the PeopleFit Talent Pool Evaluation Process.

In addition to being a practical way to introduce managers to the concept of work layers and corresponding human capability levels, PeopleFit's talent evaluation process has proven particularly effective in improving the quality of initial staffing decisions during merger and acquisition.

In 2003, PeopleFit partnered with Barry and Sheila Deane to form PeopleFit Austrailasia. Prior to becoming independent consultants, the Deane's held management positions within CRA, which embraced and implemented Requisite Organization principles over the course of 20 years. Their practical experience led them to create realistic, credible methodologies to help clients "work out" the implementation of RO based upon their situation.
