Web Reboot at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
UTC had a daunting responsive redesign challenge simultaneous with a CMS implementation. With 300 web editors and 10,000 pages of content, the project required strong project management and a lot of negotiation.

During this session, they’ll share their successful project strategies, redesign tips, and the lessons they learned along the way.
