Which Type of Web Council is Right for Your Organization?

If it's on your to-do list to establish a Web Council in your organization or even revive a council that once met long ago, check out Lisa Welchman's latest recorded Webinar titled "Establishing a Web Council." It was a very popular webinar topic-- generating over 100 attendees and a myriad of questions from participants who want to establish a Web council, leverage an existing committee or revive a council from the past.

In the Webinar, Lisa details the three types of Web councils:

Strategy-Focused Web Council

A strategy-focused Web council has an agenda that considers these questions:

  • What is our organization’s philosophy and approach to digital?
  • What are our digital goals?
  • Are we organized to meet those goals?

Policy-Focused Web Council

A policy-focused Web council has an agenda that asks: "How do we minimize and manage the risk of doing business through digital channels?"

Product-Focused Web Council

If your Web council is product focused, their main task is to address this the quality question: "How do we produce and maintain the highest quality and most effective digital presence?"
