Collaborative Design Workshop

The purpose of a Collaborative Design Workshop is to learn as much as possible about your content environment. Dakota will spend two days reviewing and documenting the current state of technical content, processes and tools, and identify areas of improvement. From this analysis, a future state model for an Enterprise Documentation System and migration roadmap will be developed. This on-site workshop leverages your experience and needs as well as Dakota’s vast industry knowledge, best practices and implementation techniques.
