Publishing houses outsource increased amount of work to freelancers and vendors who are managed by in-house staff across all departments. As a result of this, fewer personnel juggle more complex publications in less time, and this development expects staff in all departments to organise their own time effectively, to develop project management skills and to use them proficiently.
In this course you will learn how to use project management tools to approach a task in a structured way, learn how to identify pitfalls and how to avoid them so that you feel confident pulling the strings: act instead of react.
This course was originally called 'Understanding Project Management'.
Publishing professionals whose daily life is increasingly complex and need to successfully steer one or more projects to deliver key objectives. If you work with freelancers and vendors, including Designers, Editors, Media Producers and Digital Product Managers, then this is the course for you.
Our short courses are run at a variety of venues in Central London. Information and directions can be found on our Contact Us page. Please check your Joining Instructions for your specific course venue.
