Making It So: The Hard Work of Developing a Unified Content Strategy

Presented by

Toni Mantych

About this talk

Knowing what needs to be done and achieving it are dramatically different things. While there’s consensus that carefully and deliberately establishing and articulating a content strategy for a product, an organization, or an enterprise is a good thing, execution remains an elusive holy grail. Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Toni Mantych for this free, one-hour webinar. In this session, we’ll take a look at real challenges—logistic, political, and technical—faced as one Fortune 300 company undertook to develop a “unified content strategy” across functional groups (documentation, training, knowledge management) and divergent content. We will discuss techniques and strategies such as emphasizing common goal of client/user satisfaction to unite groups with different historical foci; employing data-driven decision-making to ensure good decisions but also to relieve organizational bias, and using charters and other project management tools to identify, celebrate, and effectively make use of the unique skills, perspectives, and assets of each participating group.
