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.

Your company is so lucky and just won a Drupal project. After the celebration, what is the next thing you have to do? You are going to build a brand new Drupal site. Where should you start?  We all want to do it right at first time to avoid rework. We want to use Agile timeboxed development to have early and frequent delivery to get customer feedback. But, Drupal has so many modules, which one should be build first? How could we build it right with Agile development cycles? This workshop is to demonstrate and practice a success model you could adopt to build your new Drupal site and to meet customer’s expectations. 

Featured Participants: This workshop is targeting both federal agency who issuing a Drupal contract and vendors who won a new Drupal site and may win the contract in the future.
