Whereas Master CVs can be used to demonstrate individual contributions from employees and teams within your company, a reference project is formatted to demonstrate the success of your organisational processes quickly and efficiently. The reference project template is formatted to emphasise the most vital elements of the project:
With only a few short sentences you can summarise working methodologies and solutions, or include performance metrics, to offer compelling evidence of your company’s ability to get the job done and meet the client’s highest expectations.
As a knowledge-based enterprise or service, there are two elements to selling your company:
To meet the first criterion, use the Master CV search to find and add employees with specific skills to a new proposal. For meeting the second criterion, the reference project uses past projects to illustrate how your business functions collectively to reach project objectives:
As CV Partner creates a single workflow for your entire enterprise, it becomes possible to use projects completed in one part of your organisation as a springboard for selling your entire operation. Each reference project you store is searchable by all stakeholders and system users, so the data for different departments and locations can be shared with optimal efficiency.
Imagine that your teams in London are bidding for a new rail project, but they haven't previously work with transport before. However, the team in Munich has worked on several transport projects, including rail. The London team can now simply add Reference Projects from the Munich teams to give their bid more authority.
But the key is, that the London team aren't simply selling the specialist skills of the Munich team in isolation, but the collaborative knowledge of your company as a whole.
Reference projects - don’t just tell people what you can do, show them.
