Do you have the right people in the right jobs to support your DAM?

Staffing Checklist:

  • If your DAM administrator is doing multiple jobs; what impact is this having jobs done or contributed by your DAM by asset creators?
  • If your content creation staff is doing multiple jobs; what impact is this having on their contributions to your DAM in terms of metadata or providing content in a timely manner?
  • Would a professional DAM administrator or librarian help to provide content with better metadata or in a timely manner?
  • Is your IT staff responsive enough to optimize your search engine or deal with crashes quickly so there is little lost time?
  • Does your IT staff have the capabilities to deal with DAM implementation and long term care and upgrades or do they need additional training or staff members?
