All creative in-house teams are engaged in project management, whether they like it or not. This can sometimes feel outside of the designer’s wheelhouse. But the implementation of comprehensive project workflow processes and metrics tools are critical to successful project execution and team management.
How are resources assigned to a project? Are clear expectations set from the outset? How is the statement of work and creative brief developed? What deliverables are needed at various stages of the project? How are revisions and approvals handled? How is a project’s success measured?
Join us for a members-only roundtable discussion led by veteran in-house design manager, Andy Epstein, as we delve into these questions and find out how other in-house design teams are approaching project management. Come share your own best practices and hurdles you encounter. Find out what software tools other teams are using and what workflow processes are working successfully.
Feel free to send screen shots or presentation files of your set-up, as we will have a room with a projector and encourage all of you to share. Screen shots (pdf, jpg or png format) can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
