What are Enabling Assets?

Enabling Assets are critical components of a mature content management environment. As the name implies, these assets enable the effective and consistent creation and management of content. In addition, they promote better quality practices and are essential elements of a proactive approach to quality management.

Examples of enabling assets are language style guides, translation memories, authoring guidelines, receiving inspection sheets, quality checklists, project hand-off procedures, work instructions, and other items that contribute to improved content management.

Furthermore, enabling assets benefit all parties that impact content management activities by establishing a mutual understanding of requirements and expectations. This is particularly important because ambiguity and discretionary interpretation are often the primary root causes for quality issues, rework, and project delays.

In addition, organizational change and personnel turnover often expose knowledge gaps. The reason is that implicit knowledge is either not defined or it leaves with the knowledge owner. In other words, enabling assets retain critical knowledge and assist with the transition as well as training of personnel and suppliers.

For example, Language Service Providers (LSPs) can help establish linguistic enabling assets to support cost control and quality assurance. LSPs also play an important role in defining project hand-off requirements and help align quality objectives.

In summary, an appropriate portfolio of enabling assets helps produce quality content while establishing a mutual understanding of requirements for different content management activities and participants. Enabling assets also contribute to better risk management and cost containment.
