Cross-Functional Content Lifecycle Workshop

Best practices for content: Developing a cross-functional content lifecycle process

Within the b-to-b content ecosystem, companies often struggle with:

• Who is responsible for content insight, creation, activation and optimization – you can have redundancies or gaps

• Content that is disorganized, difficult to find and often out of date or incomplete

• Improved content value and relevance by assessing and addressing any content gaps or redundancies

• Improved productivity of team members by having clear role definitions and responsibilities

• A lack of an agreed upon strategy for content creation and lifecycle management

The SiriusDecisions Content Model provides organizations with a best-in-class framework to effectively manage, measure and optimize the b-to-b content ecosystem. Working within this model, your company can develop an agreed upon content lifecycle process.

SiriusDecisions can help your team:

• Learn the model, map the process and establish a shared language

• Establish roles and responsibilities within the ecosystem

• Understand the content strategy, process and the language to talk about it

• Develop a framework for ongoing cross-functional discussions and collaboration

Make an investment for a long-term impact to your business.
