Case Study: How to Create Content Ecosystem Based Teams for Client Success

Enterprise-wide Product teams are silo’d and the client facing content ecosystem suffers because of the lack of communication between teams. How might we break down those walls and start to build teams that look at the entire content ecosystem? How could we measure the client success?

We gathered together user research on client needs, product teams, and content teams and travelled their userunique user journey through workshops, and creation of focused holistic guilds. We learned what worked and what did not work and a few very common issues that break the user’s content experience across Marketing, Product doc, Training, and Support. Sharing this enterprise wide effort will hopefully help others not only see the problems but find the solutions that will work for their unique client base.

In this session, attendees will learn:

The basic steps to bringing internal teams together to better meet the content ecosystem needs of their users. This information will include what worked what did not work and how we found success in this enterprise wide case study.
