Creating Sustainable Website Processes
October 14th | 1:30 PM
It’s launch day! You and your team have worked hard to achieve this day—the moment when you release your client’s website into the wild, ready to go off and live on its own. But wait! Is the client’s team equipped to handle the growing needs of their new website? Who will be making needed updates? Are others involved in content maintenance decisions? And will your client be able to deal with the design and development needs of the site as the site’s purpose grows?
In this workshop, we will:
- talk about what features make a website sustainable for a client and how to engineer our processes to promote sustainability.
- work collaboratively to understand how we might use new techniques to help our team adapt to content management-forward thinking and work through a real case study using these new processes.
- look at how we can help our project teams identify content manager needs; how we can use discovery time to realize commonly missed, intensive requirements; and how to reverse engineer a project process to include ongoing maintenance on the client side.
