Winery Exchange

Winery Exchange purchased Reiser Reports in 2001, creating a team to develop and operate a new division of their company called TradePulse.  TradePulse is a multi source web hosted report repository targeting medium to small size suppliers in the wine and spirits industry.  I was contracted for six years to be a member of both the development and operations teams.  The organizational structure of TradePulse is Weak Matrix.  While TradePulse has a development team, that development team may require the services of members of the operations team.  The project manager must coordinate with the production managers to ensure that development projects are completed without the undue interruption of production.  I was responsible for providing Industry Knowledge & Expertise, Database Knowledge & Expertise, Product Specifications and Operational Support to the TradePulse teams.  I was a senior member of the teams, providing leadership to the teams even though I was not in a formal position of authority.
