Doing a Lot with a Little: Project Management at Scale

Digital PM Summit 2019 – October 22, 2019

Feeling overwhelmed? Whether you belong to a PM team of one, manage a laundry list of clients or wear several different hats on any given day, sometimes the deluge of work far outweighs the resources at your disposal. Yet, you still need to give every project your full attention and best efforts, without blowing timelines and budgets.

No two teams are alike, so why do we apply a one-size-fits-all philosophy to digital project management? This session will discuss how to customize the standard DPM processes to fit your personal constraints. We will review efficient, scrappy solutions to help you use your time wisely and still achieve the desired results.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Ways to scale your process to meet your team’s unique constraints
  • Tips for approaching projects one-by-one… when you have 50 of them
  • Tactics to reduce overhead, set boundaries and add structure when your task list gets out of hand
  • The appropriate time and place for a “PM lite” approach
