Managing editorial projects brings many risks and challenges, but also rewards. This in-depth course will help you to use both traditional and Agile project management techniques to navigate your way successfully through each stage of your projects.
Clear explanations of best practice theories and terminology, combined with hands-on experience, will give you the tools to effectively manage your print and digital editorial projects.
The course promotes active learning and uses a blended approach of self-study, interactive activities, group work and an in-depth editorial case study to guide you through the practical tasks.
Using the case study as the core, students take a step-by-step approach to setting up and running a project, learning how to handle issues that arise along the way. How to estimate costs, manage your budget, maintain profitability, control costs, assign tasks and document processes are all covered.
At the end of the course, you will have gained skills and knowledge to put into practice immediately. Plus, you will have access to a suite of templates and documentation to help keep your editorial projects running smoothly and profitably from start to finish.
Please note that this course focuses exclusively on editorial projects. If you have a non-editorial role and want to gain an understanding of general, non-editorial projects, we recommend Introduction to Project Management.
