Driving One Story for Your Customers!
ServiceNow is expanding at lightning speed! And with that growth comes a bottoms up environment of creating pockets of content teams all across the company. All of these groups strive to provide the best content for our customers but lack a unified approach. This is not an uncommon experience in many of today’s companies. Come learn how the largest of these teams, ServiceNow’s Product Content organization, is working to intentionally collaborate with all customer-facing content teams to ensure a consistent message for our users, wherever they may be in their customer journey.
This session will explore understanding how to identify the other content teams in your organization (not as easy as it sounds!), how to entice them to carve out time for collaboration, and how to gain executive sponsorship for ongoing, intentional, cross-team content planning. We’ll provide specific strategies you can take back to your organizations as we walk through several of our current initiatives including:
· Participating in cross-functional go-to-market teams
· Providing pre-sales support
· Creating a comprehensive In-product help experience
· Supporting customer portfolio expansion
· Ensuring maximum return on investment for customer satisfaction
· Investing in user research to validate all of the above
What can the audience expect to learn?
We want to inspire content teams from any part of an organization to work together for the clearest message! We’ll provide examples of actual initiatives currently in progress. We’ll share how our various content teams come in and out of the content development cycle as our products go through development and how to coordinate those efforts.
