DrupalCon: Lessons From the Intersection of Project Management and Content Strategy

DrupalCon speaker badge

DrupalCon 2013 in Portland Oregon is right around the corner! I’m so excited for my talk: “So Happy Together (Content Strategists and Project Managers Are)” on Wednesday, May 22nd at 10:45AM.

During this session we’ll discuss how much we CMS Mythbusters respect and appreciate the rapidly emerging discipline of content strategy. Ironically, after all these years building CMS driven websites, there is one thing we still wish people were more aware of: content matters. Sounds silly right? After all, the ‘C’ in ‘CMS’ stands for…Well, content.

However, project stakeholders are often so wrapped up worrying about technical risks or marveling over new designs that content can nearly be forgotten or worse…Treated as an unimportant ‘detail’ to be figured out later (queue Lorum Ipsum).

Content Strategy Meets Project Management

We’ll take a look at tools of the trade in content planning and strategy, discuss when and how to integrate content strategists and some of the consequences of ignoring this important aspect of designing and building new web properties. We’ll also be handing out *exclusive CMS Myth prizes* so you won’t want to miss this one!

P.S. – If you’re a regular CMS Myth reader and you recognize the title of this session, your eyes are not deceiving you…It’s based on a blog post I wrote last year.
