Free STC Member-Only Webinar: The Importance of Governance in Regulated Content

Free

Governance may not be a “four letter word” but in many organizations that’s exactly how it’s treated. Governance is key in all organizations that create content, and it’s especially important in regulated industries where content must be scrutinized and verified before it’s made available to the public. Often it’s blamed for slowing down the creative process, or increasing time-to-market. Those aren’t features of “governance”, but are indicative of a poor or inappropriate implementation. Join me as I explain why governance is important and how you can streamline your governance process.

Think about your audience, help them get the information the want/need, and let them consume it the way they want. The right info, to the right people, at the right time, and in the right format to help them make an informed decision. Sound good?
