The Internet

enabling global project management

This article reports on how the Internet was used in a collaborative project to produce an interactive CD-ROM product about international cuisine. Among the tools that proved useful to this fragmented, multidisciplinary team were e-mail, teleconferencing, and the utilization of a private intranet site for the posting of storyboards, draft program screens, samples of advertising and packaging, and other items circulated for review. An FTP site enabled reviewers and volunteer testers to download beta copies of the program, and the project managers were available at all hours to confer with people on different continents. Cyberspace proved to be a critical and low-cost arena for gathering people and resources to produce a superior product on time.
