Moderator: Panel on Publishing Project Management
I have put together a panel of four professionals representing different aspects of the publishing industry.
What exactly does a project manager do? The answer is as varied as the types of publishing projects that exist. This panel brings together four Seattle-based professionals with over 30 years of combined experience as project managers in the book publishing industry. They will introduce the variety of positions open to someone with project management skills and help attendees determine whether this might be a possible career option—especially in this era of “wearing many hats” for employers and clients.
- What practical skills do you need to do your job, and how did you gain those skills?
- How many projects do you work on at any given time?
- Describe a typical workday
- Do you use special “planning” software?
