Book Publishing Project Management:
audio conference for Copyediting.com, recorded on August 10, 2016
Project managers are responsible for taking a book from raw manuscript to print-ready files, on time and on budget. What exactly is involved in project management? How does a project manager schedule the work and monitor the progress? What happens when things don’t go as planned? Lori Paximadis will take you on a tour of the project management process.
We’ll discuss how to:
- Assess a project
- Build a solid team
- Create scheduling strategies
- Find high- and low-tech project tracking options
- Put a project back on the rails
