Project Management for Publishers

PMfP

 

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'.
