Sharing knowledge in a variety of ways

In 2015 Jon Munro (Cinch Digital) and Karin Elgin-Nijhuis assisted the UNWTO’s Communications department in preparing the Request for Proposal for a new website. Tasks performed included: defining the aims and objectives of the website, based on the organisational requirements; defining detailed website requirements; defining overall design guidelines; defining design specifics (front-end user functionality) and design specifics (back-end functionality); defining build specifics (technical and integration requirements); defining guidelines for the supplier selection process.
