Project Management for Publishing - Virtual classroom - 23 & 24 November - FULLY BOOKED

Projects are vital for all publishing organizations to move forward and implement change. Everyone gets involved in them. They may involve developing new products, new processes and systems, adopting new technologies, reaching new markets, acquiring new business, selecting new suppliers or improving existing processes. Projects are also challenging and often fail to achieve the desired results. This course provides those managing projects as well as those working on them with a template and many supporting tools that can be applied to all projects, large or small, to help ensure successful outcomes. It has a strong emphasis on getting things right at the outset because this is where most problems with projects arise. The programme is highly practical and includes break-out sessions using real project scenarios provided by delegates as well as providing publishing case studies as examples of what works and what doesn’t. more >

Introduction to Journals Marketing - Virtual classroom - 23 & 24 March

An essential introduction to the changing and challenging role of promoting journals in today’s market. As international higher education struggles with the impact of Covid-19 this makes it even more crucial that our marketing is well-judged and focused specifically on what researchers and librarians want to know. Includes competing with free online resources, declining academic library budgets, and the shift away from journals and on to articles. How does all of this impact on the marketing we should be doing? How do we engage with audiences with so many demands on their attention? We also discuss the sector’s increased emphasis on author and society relationships and on ‘input marketing’ – encouraging high quality submissions and therefore marketable content. This is an established course developed for face-to-face training which has now been adapted to run online in two three hour sessions on consecutive days. A practical marketing plan activity gives plenty of opportunity to apply principles discussed to a real-life scenario. This is briefed ahead of the course and all participants are required to have given this some thought before the course. more >
