How to Build a Successful Business Operating Model with Content Governance

Governance is an essential part of long-term success that is frequently misunderstood and too often under-valued and under-resourced. Governance requires engagement, commitment, investment, and active participation.  Many people think of governance of a necessary evil—but effective governance demystifies how to successfully do your job. 

In this webinar, we will discuss how business requirements dictate the appropriate governance for information architecture, technology, and process.

The webinar will allow time for an audience Q & A session.
