If you want to create a collaborative enterprise, whether from scratch or by transforming a traditional one, Peter Thoeny is the person who can give you the support you need, with the highest quality available. With Peter, you will be able to create the web environment on which to work, and get people working together, incrementally, inexpensively, at the right pace for the problem at hand, and tailored to meet your company's unique needs.
The key features of Peter's approach - and the Wiki philosophy, are 1. open, creative work, that accommodate the processes of the company, but don't lock the work down to them, 2. integrating the assets used and produced with the processes followed in the transformation between use and produce. (Most approaches instead separate the process elements from the artifacts produced, and focus on tightly prescribing processes, not on the results needed) 3. an open system that enables you to glue together the disparate knowledge sources and tools you might choose for narrower purposes, such as web conferences, customer relationship management, bug tracking...
But equally important is Peter's quiet, unassuming nature, a nature that helps those threatened by change to relax, and a nature behind which lurks vast experience and rules of thumb, which he will offer you just in time, as you need them. Peter will lighten your load and brighten your path.

First of all, Twiki is excellent. I worked with the platform extensively before getting the chance to meet and work directly with Peter. It's incredibly powerful and having Peter's help to accomplish our goals has made every expectation possible at a lightening pace. Peter is not only a master at making the capture, manipulation and socialization of information wonderfully simple; he is also a joy to work with and receives my highest respect.

Peter is a highly skilled programmer and architect. He is one of the best managers I've had and is a fantastic person to work for. Peter works hard himself and does a great job of leading by example. I'm looking forward to the time when we will get to work together again.
