Policies, procedures and better websites

My latest Smashing Magazine post provides some valuable tools for ensuring your organisation works more effectively with its website.

Digital Strategy:

Yesterday I posted about a new series I will be writing on site management, strategy and governance. <sarcasm> Sounds exciting doesn’t it. </sarcasm>

If you simply cannot wait and want a sneak peek at just some of the things we will be covering, check out my latest post on Smashing Magazine.

Entitled “An Organizational Structure That Supports Your Digital Presence” I highlight the fact that many organisations need to undergo cultural and structural change in order to effectively utilise the web.

I look at subjects such as responsibilities, policies, politics, roadmaps, KPIs and more. If your website is struggling due to management issues, then this is a worthwhile read. As I say at the beginning of the post…

When it comes to the Web, few organizations have found the Goldilocks zone. Their online activities are either under-managed with minimal policies and procedures, or dogged by bureaucracy and internal politics.

Time to fix the problem.
