Project Management for Publishing

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 >
