Implementing a Successful DAM Program - Series Summary

Registration includes access to all five sessions to view on demand.


Session 1: Define your DAM Roadmap and Minimal Viable Product (MVP)

It all starts with a shared DAM vision right across your organization. It continues by developing an iterative plan for deploying a DAM program. Both stages require a deep understanding of your organization's current asset management processes. Without that, you cannot determine what your ideal DAM future should look like. This session will walk through how to recognize and deal with the pain points in your existing asset processes and how to fill the gaps. Understanding the pain points and filling the gaps is fundamental to defining the optimal future state of your MVP, creating a phased roadmap for getting there and formulating a vision of subsequent development.

Session 5: Governance, Periodic Health Checks, and A Living ROI Model

How do you assess whether your DAM system is successful? How do you quantify the level of success? How do you know whether you have delivered your original vision? Did you follow the original road map (and does it matter if you did not)? In this session, we focus on building an interactive system-wide governance structure and an on-going ROI model suitable for reporting to top management and use in budget applications.
