Why this workshop?
A systems integrator
we recently heard said "All too often Portals are the question, but Content
Management is the answer." Companies may be seduced by slick looking interfaces
that promise to deliver you the information you need at a glance, or at most
with one search query.
Often, companies buy-in to the CM vendor story as well; that keeping a website
or intranet coherent and up to date is as easy as uploading the umpteenth press
release via a simple web interface.
Some of the most important problems in project have much more to do with content
than technology, and with organization and communication rather than with CM
product features. Questions such as the following keep project leaders awake
- How will I get and sustain adequate support and resources for my system?
- How do I get people to contribute?
- How do I get them to understand how to scope and divide their content,
and write in a way that can be reused in different media?
- How do I convert legacy content?
- How do I prepare and model the flow of content between people and systems
and how do I communicate this?
A lot of these problems could be avoided by better preparation, modeling the
flow, and communication within your organization.
These and other questions will be discussed during our 1-day Content Management
Workshop with Bob
Boiko. Bob has more than 20 years experience helping organizations to create,
manage, and distribute their content more efficiently. He will present a number
of valuable concepts and practices and illustrate them in real-life exercises.
The workshop is CMS-system independent, but the insight you gain, will help
you to better make decisions on any CMS you decide to build or buy.
Included in the workshop is Bob's "Content Management Bible", targeted
background-material and an exercises book compiled by Bob Boiko.
Who should attend this seminar ?
- Portal and intranet project managers: if content turned out to be an issue
in your project (getting and keeping it up to date, motivating people to contribute,
conversion of "legacy" content..., consistency and reuse of information...)
- Information architects, Content Management people (the "librarians"
of your company). They are the people responsible for how different types
of information (texts and text fragments, documents, structured information,
email) are handled, what they need to consist of, how and which metadata is
added, reuse strategies, how information is made retrievable via search and
- Knowledge management responsibles, who search for efficient ways to organize
and store the knowledge of employees into manageable chunks of text in order
to make it transferable to colleagues.
