    Web Governance Development

    I stop organizational conflict around website development by collaborating to create a web governance framework. I do this in four steps: First, I listen. I visit you and listen to all concerns from all stakeholders. Second, I validate. I write a memo articulating what I saw and heard and what I think your key problems are. This memo is usually five or fewer pages. In my experience, there are really only a few things causing big, pervasive problems. Third, I think. I follow up with stakeholders and brainstorm options for resolving your concerns, giving great consideration to your culture. Fourth, I collaborate. Together, we create a governance framework that will be viable and effective for your organization.
