A presentation by The Chronicle's publisher, Mireille Grangenois, and CTO, Don Sargent:
The Chronicle of Higher Education has been serving the higher ed and philanthropy communities for more than 45 years. Higher education has so many new challenges today that the Chronicle had to find ways to solve the biggest problems now. Traditional product teams and methods trying to grow the company as a "side of the desk" activity weren't moving the needle fast or boldly enough.
This session will reveal how Don and Mireille are accomplishing this by fusing the business, editorial, and technology organizations into a startup team that's creating Vitae, the career hub for higher education professionals. Using Lean Startup methods and blending in the best parts of Chronicle's unique culture, they are creating new products that weren't possible in the past.
