Joe Fleming, CEO, wanted his company to continue to grow and become a world class consulting organization by its core business which is helping other organizations with project management.
He found it is crucial for PME to have an exemplary process for managing its own projects, so he decided to develop a Project Management intranet site that would allow all consultants in the firm share their project knowledge .This project would also make sense to make some of the information available to the firm’s clients. He believes the firm can streamline operations and increase business by providing information related to Project Management on the Intranet Site. For example the firm could provide project management templates, tools, articles, links to the other sites, and “Ask the Expert” feature to help build relations with current and future clients.
