Many stumble into it; some choose it and the lucky few who make a success of it might even enjoy it. Although it seems as if anyone can become one, being a web project manager isn’t a job for everyone!
It requires cross-organisational operation as well as interdisciplinary skills, and it is a job in which you are often alone. As a web project manager you are likely to be asked to make decisions where you only have half the necessary information, no real mandate and totally inadequate funds. Being caught in a deadlock of frozen budgets, increased project scope and impossible deadlines is just business as usual. However, there are ways of improving your chances of success. In this talk we will explore some of those. The contents of the session derive from the many discussions in J. Boye’s Community of Practice, teachings and findings from different experts and the personal experiences of Sara Redin.
