The role of a Strategic Project Manager

In collaboration with stakeholders and management you will define and help implement best practices for using their Master Data solution based on analyses of their organization.

Our services mainly target global-scale enterprises with differing needs: some clients already harvest their data; others are about to introduce Master Data Management into their organization. Projects vary from six months to two years depending on the scope.
