Initial testing resulted in great simplification of the landing page and other interfaces throughout the application.

Takeaways

What I learned:
The content team had acclimated to the current CMS workflow and couldn’t see the massive issues affecting their processes. It took a lot of patience and demonstration to convince them initially that huge changes were needed. Once they were aware of the issues, they were completely on board with the redesign.
