Producing quality news more efficiently is essential in new media world

Rolv Erik Ryssdal, CEO of the Schibsted Media Group, provides an answer in the new Innovations in Newspapers 2011 World Report, an annual survey presented Saturday by the Innovation International Media Consulting Group at the World Newspaper Congress and World Editors Forum.
 
"There are several avenues open for increasing productivity without jeopardizing the quality of our content," he says in the report. "Here, many news organizations have major room for improvement. Cost control will be important, as will the quest to identify waste in order to use our resources more sensibly. We also emphasize the need for more planned journalism; more planned jobs, earlier submissions, first pages ready several days in advance, and significantly reduced evening staffing."
 
"Contrary to traditional fears and beliefs, this has actually resulted in better content, more major news stories, better production procedures and more satisfied readers. Instead of delivering yesterday's news, we are setting the day’s topic of conversation even more firmly," he says.
 
The annual Innovations report for the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) looks at major innovations and developments in the newspaper industry worldwide and is always a highlight of the Congress and Forum.
 
The presentation provides a whirlwind tour of the latest developments in tablets, pay walls, social media, mobile publishing, multimedia storytelling and much more.
