If you work in the UX / IA or BA sector of web development, then you'll probably come across the requirement to develop a website using a content management system, or finding a solution for a client who has a lot of content or communication needs. In the past you'd probably create a spreadsheet and deliver the website ticking the boxes. In the past - this solution might have worked. However, more and more clients are taking the CMS and then rather rapidly ending up in exactly the same position they were in before they got their new website - i.e. a lot of content that nobody uses or can find.
The other issue that's facing our industry now is that there are multiple digital channels into which messaging or content needs to be delivered. How do you bring all of these channels together strategically to meet the needs of both the user and the business? Well - whilst this book won't do it for you, it gives you a really great set of tools to help you deliver what you need. It reduces the risk that the wrong message goes out on a specific channel, it also reduces the risk that the nice new website ends up with the wrong content in the wrong place.
The book is a pleasure to read, it's simple to understand and you'll probably find yourself going 'ah! that makes perfect sense, why haven't I thought of that before!' The techniques it suggests won't add lengthy delays to a project, nor will it mean it'll cost a lot more, it just brings things together in such a way that you'll end up saving money in the short, medium and long term.
