[For Journalism] Project Management

Do you have a mandate to build a news product, but are unsure how to start or manage the project effectively? Do you have teammates spread throughout the newsroom or even the world? We'll show you collaboration tools and workflow best practices to help you properly estimate effort, maximize productivity, minimize rework and finish projects on time. Editors and managers will get the most from this workshop, but everyone will learn a useful management strategy to take back to your teams and increase productivity. Bring your laptop and a power cord. Please note that space for this workshop is limited to 80 participants. Seats will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
