Building a Phenomenal Content Community of Practice

People who design and create content experiences seem to find themselves in all different types of organizational structures. In fact, many content practitioners find themselves reporting to someone who doesn’t understand content or all of the things important to those who create that content. Despite these organizational hurdles, you can still create an exceptional content community of practice. But, how do you actually start connecting these individuals into a cohesive unit who work together? Join me to walk through creating a content community of practice!

In this session, attendees will learn and leave with:

  • Suggested ways on kicking off a content community of practice
  • Ideas to keep content community members engaged in distributed workplaces
  • Tips for getting management buy-in for focus on content-specific work
