For many of us who create websites and applications, sound project management is the glue that holds everything together. Without these brave souls, things can go "Lord of the Flies" in a heartbeat. It's an incredibly demanding role. PMs need to be highly organized, expert communicators, and able to keep projects on time and under budget. They're both our offensive and defensive lines. They're true leaders.
All too often, the focus within our industry is on the end product, not the journey. The fact is, the journey is what makes the product. Those journeys are charted, literally and figuratively, by people playing project manager roles. But you know what stinks? No one has publicly shared secrets that make this crucial role tick, and no one has provided a venue for PMs to simply vent. Until now.
After managing projects for over a decade, we are excited to start sharing, and we'd like you to be a part of it. We're currently researching the precise kind of event specifically for digital project managers, and we'd like to get your input to help shape this thing.
Please take a few minutes to complete our survey, and share it with your peers and colleagues. We'll keep this open from November 9 - 21, 2012. After we analyze the results, we'll be announcing something special for the few, the proud, the project managers.
