Why it Works So Well...
Every session of the Great Expectations core program is linked to
every other session via a unique proprietary design process called
The Weave. Developed by LCG associates for select Fortune 500
clients, weave programs generate results far beyond those based
on traditional building-block methods because of the complex
network of linkages (weaves) contained between and
throughout the content of every session.
