Project Management for Publishers

now virtual

Staff within publishing companies are increasingly asked to act as project managers, overseeing new product developments and launches.

This one-day course has been created for those working in publishing who have to manage projects. It will give you the confidence to be a good project manager; explain how to get the most out of your time; demystify the terminology of project management; and show you how to plan, execute and close a project. It will also look at good communication, budgeting, scheduling and dealing with any difficulties that may arise.

This course was originally called 'Understanding Project Management'.

  • Anyone within publishing who has been tasked with delivering a project
  • Those new to project management who need an overview of what it is and how it works
  • Staff who manage freelancers and offshore suppliers
  • Those who are thinking of moving into a more project-focused role
