Improving the Content Review and Approval Process in Regulated Industries

A multiplicity of tools used across different roles in a company often hampers an Agile release cycle. This is especially true where departments use tools unique to their roles.

What are the challenges faced in regulated industries (medical device, life science, finance, transportation, etc.) when it comes to reviewing and approving publications? How do you motivate engagement from non-technical writers?

In this session, attendees will learn:

  • Concrete ideas for improving the review and approval process in regulated industries
  • Focus points and features required across the entire content management lifecycle
  • Examples of processes that can increase SME motivation to review content, reduce delays, and reduce the learning curve while retaining full change management control that answers to high Quality Management System requirements demanded by regulatory bodies
