Sun Tsu, Dorothy, and the Road to Implementing Content Strategy
Where do you start in discovering the elements of a content strategy in your business and what methods can we use to help plan and implement the resulting strategic vision. By drawing on experience of working with many companies over several years, Julian will share his ideas and experiences to help you plan and implement a content strategy. This is not a review of specific technology or functional elements of what to do with your content but rather a detailed look at the business case and how to gain management mindshare to achieve your information vision and goals.
