Whether working freelance, on a project team, or just being a corporate puppet, “creatives” need a good management practice more than ever. It is really not enough to be creative or talented in the world of digital media. Good time management, communication management and project management are necessary elements for career success. This solo presentation will demonstrate a high level view of good management techniques for creative people that want to push their careers forward. Two-thirds of the session will be a prepared presentation in order to establish a fruitful dialogue with the attendees for the back third of the session. Management topics can include: • Defining scope of work to ensure a successful completion • Effective communications with stakeholders (team leads, customers, company execs) • Agile vs. waterfall project management (why care?) • Building a good base for future work (creating a work library) • Managing personal workflow to preserve quality of life and lessen project crunch time. A good source of references will be provided at the end of the session for further interest in the topic.
