Working with Your Subject Matter Experts

Contiem understands the importance of keeping your engineers and senior operations personnel focused on their core competencies. Having these subject matter experts (SMEs) spend time developing documentation or training content is not likely the best use of their time. That is often one of the primary drivers for companies contacting Contiem; offloading SMEs is a business imperative.

What is Required of Your SMEs?

SMEs have two basic responsibilities: providing information that will comprise the content of a project and reviewing the content Contiem creates or updates.

Providing information: Whether source material is readily available or not, Contiem has a process for reducing the impact on SMEs during our information-gathering process. We familiarize ourselves with the industry, product, and content required for the users, identify areas that require clarification and where there are information gaps, then consolidate our questions before meeting with SMEs.

Furthermore, the Contiem project manager (PM) selects project team members, knowing what skills and industry experience a particular project requires.

Our proven process ensures that we flexibly and efficiently:
