Let us help you on your next project...

Project Budgeting

Support for scoping the time, effort and expense to successfully launch your project. We can lead or support your team in identifying tasks and timeline that will help determine project cost.

Third Party Vendor Selection

From requirements documentation to contract signing, we can assist or lead your effort to identify the appropriate vendors for your project. We can work with your team to document requirements and develop an RFP. Our expertise includes identifying vendors meeting your “must have” requirements and reviewing their capabilities with you to ensure the appropriate product and budget fit.

Digital Platform Strategy

We can work with you to help create a strategy that gets the most out of your current and future digital platforms. Working closely with your Communications, Human Resources, Information Technology teams and other stakeholders, we will provide insight into best practices and methodologies and strategies that will work best for your organization. If you want to drive collaboration, increase employee engagement, or are just looking to create more creative and dynamic content, we can work with you to find the right roadmap. We never provide cookie cutter answers, every organization is different and needs its own approach.

Project Planning

Whether it’s a review of your current intranet, an upgrade project or a complete replacement initiative, we can support you in many capacities. We have experience with numerous platforms, including SharePoint and Office 365. If your strategy includes adding additional engagement capabilities to support your workforce, we can discuss options and approaches to find the best fit for your firm.

Intranets

Whether it’s a review of your current intranet, an upgrade project or a complete replacement initiative, we can support you in many capacities. We have experience with numerous platforms, including SharePoint and Office 365. If your strategy includes adding additional engagement capabilities to support your workforce, we can discuss options and approaches to find the best fit for your firm.

Content Strategy

With any project, what to do with your current content is critical. Decisions on what should move and where it should go can determine the ultimate success of your project. On top of that, you also need to consider how your approach should change as you move forward. Should your information architecture change to accommodate a new content strategy? Does your message or medium need to change as your workforce changes? As your platforms change? As your corporate strategy is updated? Contact us to discuss any of these topics.

We can provide a traditional project management role or partner and embed with your team to develop, enhance and expand your communication tools. What are the options, and which of them fit your organizational strategy? What are your employees looking for, and do they even know what questions to ask? What is a digital workplace, and why do you need one? What is the best method, and which tools can you utilize to drive collaboration across your organization and between individuals and teams?
