Newsroom integration can be messy and confusing, often resulting in vague structures of accountability and communication, inefficient allocation of resources and friction between old-school roles and new-age processes.

SPADE — a blueprint for modular workflow in omnimedia newsrooms — is an approach that can solve this misintegration.

The newsroom is designed to work as a single content supply chain — with data-driven, multi-screen sourcing, production, assembling, distribution — feeding all news brands, across editions. SPADE is a fresh way to look at the organizational structure, job descriptions and tools of a digital-first, integrated newsroom.
