Managing editorial projects comprises multiple risks, rewards and challenges. This in-depth course will help you to use both traditional and Agile project management techniques to navigate your way successfully through the risks and challenges to make the most of the rewards.
Combining clear explanations of best practice theories and terminology with hands-on experience, this course will give you the tools to effectively manage both print and digital editorial projects. Promoting active learning, the course uses a blended approach of personal study, interactive activities, group work and an in-depth editorial case study to guide you through the practical tasks required for the job.
Using the case study as the core, students will proceed through the steps of setting up and running a project, learning how to handle issues that arise along the way. How to estimate costs, assign tasks and document processes are all covered. You will understand how to set and manage your budget, keep costs under control and maintain profitability.
By the end of the course, you will have gained skills and knowledge that you can put into practice immediately. You will also be given access to a suite of templates and documentation to help keep your editorial projects running smoothly and successfully from kick-off to delivery.
Please note that the examples and case study in this course are drawn exclusively from editorial projects. We recommend Project Management for Publishers for non-editorial staff to gain a basic understanding of general (non-editorial) projects.
