"Excellence Award winners personify innovation that drives business results.

"It is amazing in reviewing these entries how organizations – both large and small – work across functions to make human capital management a valuable asset that enables business success."

"Mechanical Properties and Their Measurement" was created from a portion of ASM's most popular course, Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist.
