Building scalability and future-proofing into templates has been a focus. I find this helps as a little investment into the Learning and Development department. Breaking templates down into individual components can help others learn what goes where and you can easily collaborate with a SME. But it can also introduce complexity so it needs to strike the right balance.

Tools and systems
- Content hierarchy template
- myTrailhead module + unit template
- Google Doc as toolset (collaboration platform)
- myTrailhead as Learning Experience Platform
SME Request -> Content Audit / Outline -> Content Creation Collaboration -> Content Review / Edit -> Finalize Content -> Published
