Networking and professional development for Interactive Project Managers. We define "interactive" as work that requires an interaction between the user and technology, and which blends the creative aspects of advertising with business-driven goals of marketing and the technical complexities of software development.
Founded by Meghan McInerny, co-author of Interactive Project Management: Pixels, People, and Process, this group meets to discuss methodologies, best practices and challenges in the realm of interactive project management in agency, corporate, and nonprofit environments and aims to help define the critical leadership role of project managers in interactive work.
Everyone from entry-level to seasoned project managers are welcome to attend. But no recruiters, please!
Zoom Meetup (invite will be posted the week of the event)
Keeping remote teams engaged requires that project managers are proactive in engaging their teams and are able to think outside of the box when it comes to keeping in touch and connecting with their people. This session targets the leader who desires to better communicate, manage and develop virtual teams. By the end of the session, participants will:
1) Explore the strategies and tools to effectively communicate with your virtual teams
2) Discuss the ways to provide helpful feedback and direction to staff without micromanaging
3) Discover team-building exercises that can improve team cohesion and influence team success
