Next week international digital strategy firm Britefire will run an intensive two-day course in Web Project Management. This course will teach participants how to professionally manage high performance web development projects.
This course is for project managers, designers, programmers, information architects, content strategists, business owners/clients, marketing managers, as well as consultants. It is run by a project leader with a depth of experience in managing both micro-projects for small businesses and large-scale complex web projects for global organisations including Intel, Marriott International and Lockheed Martin.
Karen Parkin, Britefire's Vice President, said: “Eight out of ten web projects fail to achieve their objectives, and they all fail before a single line of code is written. Most often it is because people skip the up-front thinking, communicate poorly, and fail to manage their multi-disciplinary teams. Worse, there are still many organisations that think they can do this stuff by the seat of their pants. The days of the Wild West Web are over. Customers expect professional delivery. Web projects are demanding - they take place in a fast-paced rapidly changing environment with multi-disciplinary teams. Having a methodology and being agile in managing projects is not only desirable, it's critical. When you know what you are doing and work within a project framework, you suddenly become empowered to manage the creative, technical and business complexities and challenges to achieve satisfying results. I wish more organisations would realise the power and potential of defining work in this way – projects provide clarity, accountability, responsibility – projects are the only way in which to implement change and to get things done right. There is no other way!”
This pragmatic and down to earth course will teach participants what makes projects invaluable for any web based initiative and what makes project managers worth their weight in gold. Based on the very latest thinking and international experience, this course provides up-to-date web project methodologies, rigorous project management skills, and knowledge. All course participants will benefit from a wealth of indispensable real-world examples, exercises, and take-away materials.
Course dates: March 4/5 (Cape Town) and March 11/12 (Johannesburg).
