Last night, around 3am, I woke up. I lay there in bed wondering why I’d woken up and as my mind started to churn I realised I was very very awake.
In flooded four things I’ve been thinking about for some time, all of which are related but I couldn’t quite make the connection. Last night I cracked it. Maybe.
I’m still thinking it through but here are the four items in question:
- Single sourcing our documentation – and recent discussions with other areas of the company who could benefit from the same approach.
- Company Information Strategy – a simple pyramid based model that allows everyone creating content to ‘map’ their audience appropriately and which should start to help with consistency of terminology and messaging.
- Document Management – there have been some murmurings about this from a few people and it’s likely to fall into my lap.
- Requirements gathering – we’ve recently rolled out a new process which should lead to better requirements for each project build.
All of these are tied together, and if planned properly can feed off each other. Naturally there is quite a lot involved with all of the above and I’ll be revisiting items one and two in the coming weeks.
Ohh and I’ve still to pull together a slide deck on “selling our services”, which involves all of the above and more. Once it’s ready, I’ll share it here.
Exciting times ahead.
