How to Establish a DAM Governance Operating Model to Meet the Needs of All Stakeholders and All Users

April 26, 2:05 PM EDT

Why bother to put in place a Governance Operating Model, and why is it seen as one of the most crucial components of the DAM workflow?

Governance is a critical element in any DAM workflow to drive consistency and to ensure that the platform you design meets the growing needs and expectations of all users. It also ensures that the content is being utilized to the full.

Charlotte Brown, Director of Digital Asset Management at Clinique will share why and how to establish a workable Governance Operating Model and the benefits for all stakeholders. She’ll highlight insights into the main points to consider including:

  • Designing a Governance Operating Model with a DAM Librarian support team
  • Ensuring the content has consistent and accurate metadata
  • Making sure that it follows a file naming convention and that all users understand it
  • Maintaining the importance of usage rights at the time content is uploaded and published to the DAM

Charlotte will also share the successful onboarding of a new agency to help with the governance model process.



An Online Event

What others say

Henry Stewart events are integral to the learning process as I finish my Master's in Library and Information Science. The added bonus of remote access allows those of us who cannot attend in person to take advantage of the industry world leaders HS events always bring. Thank you!

I always learn so much at HS DAM events! Just like DAM is a process not a project, so is keeping current with the trends, updates, and vendors. HS makes me feel like I am plugged in.

HS DAM events provide the opportunity to learn what works and doesn't, what I should be focusing on in the future, and introduce areas I may have not thought to consider in how we're currently using our DAM and where we should be going.
