A few years ago, more than 32% of digital projects failed to achieve their goals and around 44% were past deadline and over budget. While those numbers have improved, the need to manage digital projects successfully is more important than ever.

You have to be current with ever-evolving terminology and best-practice processes. And responsibility doesn’t just rest on the project manager—it’s everybody’s job. It doesn’t matter that account management usually manages all the briefing and change processes with the client, or that creative teams interpret the requirements. Getting it right means everybody has to understand the processes of digital projects. And that means you have to adapt to new project management processes. 

Building on the great success of the webinar earlier this year, we are offering a half-day workshop to go into greater depth and practical exercises to turn learning into doing.

On September 23, Nick New, Managing Director, The Knowledge Engineers, will make sure you learn the tools you need to get your projects to run smoother, on time and on budget.

Attend this half-day workshop and learn practical skills that will make a difference and help you avoid some of the pitfalls that make projects go wrong.
 
Highlights
*  Using a discovery phase to make sure you do it right the first time
*  Tips on managing requirements
*  Workflows, scrums and stealing from agile processes
*  The seven steps of documentation you need to get right
*  How to estimate time in developing a project plan
*  Common digital project pitfalls and how to avoid them
*  Testing and go-live processes that can help drive success.
