Experience level: 
Session Track: 

Business and Strategy

The purpose of this track is two-fold - one angle helps you to understand the advantages of Drupal from an organizational leadership angle and the other is to highlight the great Drupal sites and projects you're working on and to show what's possible. These sessions are business focused, and will be non-technical.


If the World Bank publishes a PDF and no one ever downloads it, does it make an impact (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/05/08/the-solutions-to-all-our-problems-may-be-buried-in-pdfs-that-nobody-reads)?

The Public-Private Partnerships cross-cutting solutions area of the World Bank supports governments and businesses around the world in setting up private-sector providers to deliver infrastructure and services that meet public-sector goals. We worked with a team of stakeholders from the World Bank’s Public-Private Partnerships crosscutting solution area, the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility, and Public-Private Partnership in Infrastructure Resource Center to help make support resources in a massive shared document library easy to surface, search and browse from multiple points of entry. We did this work in collaboration with Bivee Group.
