Getting closer to your customer: How Mass.gov is using Drupal in the last mile
How do we know we are delivering the right things? How are we informing our customers of this work and getting their feedback effectively? How can we find out what will improve our product?
In seeking the answers to these questions, the team behind Mass.gov uses the powers of Drupal to shorten the distance between developers, state department authors, and state constituents of Massachusetts by continuously improving the authoring experience to leverage new feedback loops and truly measure their success by customer satisfaction.
In this talk we’ll look at using Drupal as a product in government:
to communicate “What’s New/Fixed” to our Drupal end users with each delivery
to provide our end users contextual guides and resources on site features
to gather feedback on the usefulness of our guidance
to collect feature requests and bug reports
Ultimately, we’ll show how Drupal, as an authoring experience (for example, its admin theme) on Mass.gov, is being improved as part of efforts to continuously deliver a product of increasing value to its customers and constituents.
Attendees of any level of experience will walk away with ideas for using Drupal to get closer to their customers and continuously improve their product.
