Agile. Waterfall. Hybrid. No matter what methodology you choose, managing digital projects can be tough. But it doesn't have to be! Whether you're a Project manager, designer, developer, or any other type of digital professional, you use different processes, tools, and tactics to make things happen. You care about delivering quality—on time and under budget. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But there are some tactics you can employ to estimate, kickoff, and manage your digital projects with success.
Through a series of interactive group exercises and presentations, this workshop will provide an opportunity to share ideas, learn from others, and discuss the challenges we all face while delivering projects.
This workshop is for new and seasoned project managers. This workshop is designed for all attendees to learn from one another, as well as through the moderator's presentations.
Format of the course
No laptop needed. (In fact, we prefer you leave it at home!)
