  • 1. The new ruralnet|uk Content Management System (ruralnet|uk CMS 2.0) As you are aware we have started on the implementation of a plan to completely overhaul the way we maintain and deliver our websites and online services. Initially most of the work has been with the technical team. However, they are moving fast and we now need to think about how we are going to manage the new system from an operational perspective. This draft document outlines how the new system will work and suggests the new roles and processes we need to define in the organisation to make the most of the new way of doing things. PLEASE ask Brian or me for any clarification and get back to us with any comments. Committing to this completely new approach was a brave step to take and was a bit daunting at first. But is has turned out to be very motivational for the technical team. I hope that we will find the same will happen in the rest of the organisation as everyone is empowered to take direct control of their bit of our online presence. SB/BR
