Announcing A Practical Guide to Managing Web Projectsposted 31 July 2012 by Jo Brewer
Announcing a new Five Simple Steps book is pretty much akin to how a family treats the arrival of a new baby. For us, having a book delivered into our hands after helping it grow from a single idea leaves us feeling jubilant, and more than a little exhausted – book production is a tiring process!
So, it's with great pleasure that we can reveal the newest member of the Practical Guide family - Managing Web Projects by Breandán Knowlton. And it’s purple!
Project management is an ever-evolving discipline and many people who find themselves taking up the mantle these days have stepped in from other careers. Often, you’ll find designers, developers, researchers and marketers somehow ending up as project managers, tasked with driving forward web projects at their agencies and organisations. And a lot of the time they’re doing it without any formal training.
Sound familiar? Then this book is for you.
Breandán is a seasoned pro when it comes to project management, having worked on the web since its beginning. He has seen both spectacular successes and disastrous failures along the way, making him the perfect person to advise on what does and doesn't work when it comes to approaching new web projects.
Inside, you’ll find a collection of ideas that have worked for Breandán and the teams he has worked with over the years. However familiar or strange they are to you, whether you have a formal background in project management or not, the practical advice, checklists and guidelines in Managing Web Projects are sure to help you make your next web project a positive experience for everyone.
A Practical Guide to Managing Web Projects will be available this autumn from fivesimplesteps.com. For more information on the launch date, sign up to our newsletter.
