Advanced Digital Project Management (DPM Stage 2)

csw vc


This course assumes you have a working knowledge of digital project management (DPM) and its terminology and that you are ready to enhance your skills and take on more advanced DPM tasks. It will look in depth at defining a project including drawing-up tender documents, sourcing potential suppliers and creating realistic budgets, schedules and deliverables. It will touch on some of the more technical aspects of DPM such as data and asset management, content architecture and access control and at some of the tools that might help in effective delivery. It will look at testing stages and at how to cope with problems when they arise.

Each of the two sessions of this course will combine knowledge acquisition with how to implement this knowledge in real-life practice to achieve results. There will be opportunities for discussion, examples of best practice, real-life case studies and sample documentation provided.
