Against The Clock (ATC) was founded in 1990 and went on to become one of the nation's leading systems integration and training firms. The organization, founded by Ellenn Behoriam, specialized in developing custom training materials for clients such as L.L. Bean, The New England Journal of Medicine, the Smithsonian, the National Education Association, Air & Space Magazine, Publishers Clearing House, the National Wildlife Society, Home Shopping Network and many others.
Building on their lengthy experience creating focused and structured training materials, ATC's management team began working with major publishers in the mid-nineties to produce high-quality application and workflow-specific training aids. In 1996, ATC introduced the highly popular "Creative Techniques" series, which focused on real-world examples of award-winning commercial design, imaging and Web-page development. Working with Adobe Press, they also developed successful management books, including Workflow Reengineering, which won the IDIA award as most effective book of the year in 1997.
In 1998, the company entered into a long-term relationship with Prentice Hall/Pearson Education. This relationship allows ATC to focus on bringing high-quality content to the marketplace to address up-to-the-minute software releases. The Against The Clock library has grown to include over 45 titles focusing on all aspects of computer arts. From illustration to Web-site design, from imaging to animation, and from page layout to effective production techniques, the series is highly-regarded and is recognized as one of the most powerful teaching and training tools in the industry.
