Experiences

MAKE TIME FOR INNOVATION


I have been fortunate to have worked for the same organization for 26 years and in those 26 years I
have assumed various roles.


Seven years ago I was excited to be given the opportunity to advance within the department where I
worked.


My position at that time had become an automatic dull routine and presented no challenge, so I
welcomed the chance of a new position and fresh learning.

The new position was in a publications field and involved creating, editing, and printing a
variety of test information. The manager of the area had worked within the same department
for 35 + years and had developed most of the processes. The manager did not take the time for
innovation; the group was instructed to continue to follow the same processes which had been
used for several years without updates.


Clients of ours were asking for enhancements to the products and changes to the way their data
was being processed, but they were continually turned down. Without exception, anyone who
requested change or challenged the process was told there were no resources available for
changes.


The manager was afraid to make changes and learn new tools; as a result the department lost
a lot of ground and our competitors got the jump up on us.

The department lost a lot of ground by not embracing innovation and change, and
essentially our competitors got the jump up on us.



Changes have since been implemented and innovation and brainstorming are key in the
departments new work model.

Savannah’s Experiences

content management systems are used to design the interface of a site, and direct
the overall look and feel of the information presented on that site.


One easy way to control the information presented on a site is to add an additional
layer of security, such as a login page so that users who access the site have to have
permitted access to it.


Today, the most typical content management system consists of a web browser front
that is used by a person during the login process.

I can think of many sites that use this additional security barrier of having people
create a username and password to be able access the site in total.


Social networking sites such as
Facebook
© and Twitter©, software applications like
Skype, job search databases and University sites are examples of a few sites that I’ve
used.


In my opinion, this type of security is essential so that the interface design of the site
can’t be changed, and the wrong people aren’t awarded the privilege of having total
access to these sites.

Login Security is Essential

On the subject of the interface design of websites, in my experience, the
sites that have the greatest content management systems in place are the
umbrella sites so to speak; ones that allow the public to create their own
personal site and upload their own media content to it.


Once I am logged in to my personal account, I can easily upload videos,
pictures, share more about myself etc. and access all of this from the same
page.


The book mentions that the web

based content management systems that
are best are the ones that allow all data hosted on the site to be accessed
from one single page.

Websites that allow users to upload media content have
great content management systems

At some point, we all have encountered a website where the content is poorly managed,
and in turn the information on it isn’t easily accessible

making the website cluttered
and confusing.


The ones I’ve encountered in my personal experiences are software and movie
streaming/download sites.


Here, the content management system employed is poor because these kinds of sites rely
on hosting advertisements on the site for profit.

Streaming/download websites have the worst
