I have an idea for a new form of consultancy company and wish to gauge peoples reaction.
The idea is to have a global web based company that specializes in control (the specialty could be anything but since this group is sci.engr.control -
control will suffice). The company will offer consultancy to other companies anywhere in the world.
The way it works is that any work coming in will be distributed to members of the company with the most relevant experience - this can be done automatically or through a web based system. Those in the location or with
the most experience to solve the problem will flag it u and get the job done. The results and experience will be added to a database for members to learn from previous client contact.
A confidentiality clause will be signed by all members of the company so that competitors do not gain an advantage. To join the company an individual (and possibly existing consultancies) will submit a CV with references and relevant experiences - the current members will then decide if they are suitable (through some voting system).
The system and company will be self running and once the web pages are created the minimum level of maintenance will be required. A percentage of
each consultance work could be levied to pay for the upkeep or a fixed fee for each consultant each year.
If you are interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your interest and comments.
