Order Out of Chaos—Web Governance

A session at UX London 2013

Friday 12th April, 2013

2:00pm to 5:30pm (GMT)

Who in your organization gets to make the big decisions about your web site? Multiple departments trying to control what goes on the site and conflicting ideas about the site’s purpose are a common recipe for heartache, frustration, wasted opportunities, and worst of all, a confusing digital presence.

Establishing a web governance framework for your organization’s digital presence is essential to raising quality and improving user experience. A web governance framework expresses roles, responsibilities, rules, and standards for organizational web development. Implementing a standards-based framework for production will keep developers, content creators, and UX practitioners focused on the essentials instead of fighting fires and each other. Web governance smoothes the way for easier collaboration and more agile development.

In this half-day workshop, noted governance expert Lisa Welchman will explain how to create a web governance framework for your organization. She’ll offer practical steps for creating a complete set of Web policies and standards. Participants will leave with a detailed understanding of how to begin the process for creating Web governance frameworks for their own organizations.

Lisa will cover:

  • An overview of web governance basics
  • Enabling collaboration across business silos
  • How web strategy impacts and informs web governance
  • What should go into your organization’s web policies and standards

Small group exercises include:

  • Conducting a web policy and standards audit for your organization
  • Determining who gets to establish web standards in your organization
