Video: The Making of a Web Team

You can learn more about this session on the WPCampus Online website at https://online.wpcampus.org/schedule/the-making-of-a-web-team/.

Session Description:
A year ago our web shop went from two harried full-timers to three full-time staff, one part-timer, a couple interns, and a partnership with another unit. The two people whose idea of communication meant yelling across the hall at each other suddenly expanded to 6+, and with it came the inevitable requirements of management, and growing pains of organization and oversight.

This session is that story; how we consolidated on a CMS (WordPress), how we got staff, how we addressed our sudden influx of staff, and how we built our own “business processes”. It will also review the technology we’ve adopted to help us day-to-day: Slack, Wunderlist, and ServiceNow. And we’ll discuss the effort to shut that technology off to help improve our communication and share ideas.
