Problem-Finding as Content Strategy: Applying design thinking to the enterprise content problem
Have you ever been tasked with fixing your organization’s “Content Problem?” As enterprises grapple with the evolutionary pains of modernizing and future-proofing their content operations, content teams must find a way to ready themselves for a world that is data-driven, AI-powered, mobile-first, multichannel, predictive/adaptive/personalized, and powered by unicorns. Teams faced with this challenge must wade through the ocean of possibilities to find the right solution – but have they identified the right problem?
Chris and Edwina will present uses cases from real work with real clients to demonstrate how Tahzoo practices design thinking as a content strategy – helping clients to identify the right problems to solve and the right solutions to apply.
What can the audience expect to learn?
Use cases and real-world examples of:
– the evolution of an organization’s initially stated problem to the problem they needed to solve
– how design thinking refines the problem statement and focuses the work of solutioning
– how content strategy, information architecture, and technology work together in a design thinking methodology
