the good life in a digital age

working on the website

We’re starting the website phase of our programme of work. The intranet and Teamsites haven’t launched yet but development is wrapping up. There’s still testing, content migration, and training going on so that is hampering our ability to spend as much time on the website planning as I would like.

There are reasons to be optimistic that this phase will run more smoothly than the earlier two:

  • we’re using the same supplier and methodology and technology so we should be able to correct ‘mistakes’ we made previously
  • we’ll re-use some functionality from earlier phases
  • our content authors more likely to write their content in time – the web is always more motivating than an intranet!

On the otherhand:

  • the web is much higher profile, with many more stakeholders and the look and feel will be a more significant issue
  • accessibility could be even more challenging as we have to design for many different access technologies rather than the RNIB supported ones for staff.

Wish me luck!
