ALPSP Training: Project Management for Publishing - 27 Nov 2013 Projects are fundamental to all publishing organisations. Everyone gets involved in them. They may be developing new products, new processes and systems, adopting new technologies, reaching new markets, acquiring new business, selecting new suppliers or improving how things are done. Projects are also challenging and often fail to achieve the desired results. This course provides a template and many supporting tools that can be applied to all projects, large or small, to help ensure successful outcomes. It has a strong emphasis on getting things right at the start because this is where most problems on projects arise. The course tutors are practising project managers with a wealth of experience from the publishing sector. The programme is highly practical and includes break-out sessions using real project scenarios provided by delegates as well as providing publishing case studies as examples of what works and what doesn't. It provides an excellent introduction for those new to taking responsibility for projects as well as a great refresher for those facing new project challenges. (Full Day)
