Mind you that this still can be changed or clarified.My first first step as independent consultant? [What consultancy I want to give?] I have thought about - process mapping and give recommendation to enhance process- create monitoring and evaluation framework and tools- Strategic planning and direction of focus and what to do in order to move forward in positive reconstruction (desired outcome and impact). - Advice, guidance, and work plans- a set of recommendations for how to solve particular problems along with estimated resources, time frame, and costs to do so in regard to Management. Refer to other expert if necessary in IT, Accounting,and so on. - Tangible work product–this may include such things as maintenance of schedules, file plans, simple reporting framework and/or forms and other tools needed to advance organizations' information management efforts.
- Identifying functional and technical specifications for technology to be acquired - Developing integrated information management strategies for how content will be captured, stored, shared, and managed - I love and I am doing role as a "mentor" or advisor for organization's internal staffs do most work themselves. (Medium Organizations with internal staffs that have capacity)x I dont want to do validation of internally developed opinions or approaches. hm hm I am thinking I have to define project with client upfront with the scope of work determined.ok why is the name LIME? this will be part of my organization's history hehe fun huh? its from L & M –> Liason and Managementthen hm…what is suitable or close to L&M so LIME because I was thinking
