Many CMS project teams feel a sense of letdown after rolling out a content management solution. Instead of the expected ecstatic users, teams are met with fear of change, apathy, and complaints about usability. Rather than being able to claim "Mission Accomplished," they realize the initial rollout is just another milestone in a long journey; and it is sometimes even difficult to tell if real progress is being made. This presentation will provide methods for teams to objectively evaluate a CMS implementation along three dimensions: expectation rationality, platform suitability, and project execution. This type of evaluation can then be used to develop a strategy to move forward by building upon the foundation that has been established. This presentation will also be useful for early-stage project teams to help avoid common pitfalls that lie ahead.
