Take Web Governance on the Road in Your Organization
Lisa Welchman and Christine Pierpoint took to the road last month-- in New York and London with Vamosa-- to raise awareness about Web governance. They met a lot of people who know firsthand that the Web is too mission-critical to operate in an ad hoc manner. But, knowing and doing are different things. Lisa and Christine encouraged those they met to implement Web governance and offered a lot of practical advice on how to get started.
Consider taking Web governance "on the road" in your organization. Educate key Web stakeholders throughout your organization about how formal Web governance strengthens Web operations and benefits the entire organization. While "governance" and "Web" don't always go together in some employees minds, most are familiar with governance in other aspects of the organization, say finance or IT, and will listen when you outline the virtues of Web governance and its components-- a framework, Web policy and Web standards.
Frequently, when we work with clients, one of their major concerns is how to manage Web standards compliance for large and varied Web presence. Standards enforcement is not an after-the-fact action but something that needs to be incorporated into day-to-day Web operations.
In order to get you started with an effective strategy for standards compliance, take a look at our Web Governance and Standards Compliance White Paper which we handed out to those who attended our sessions in London and New York. I think you'll find it helpful as you go about enforcing Web standards in your organization.
