It’s hard to say when digital applications came into existence, but it’s hard to ignore their ubiquity and our reliance on them. Most of us interface with digital applications for much of our waking life. From communication, to friendships, to entertainment, to travel and finances there are very few aspects of our lives that don’t include a digital component.
The shepherds of this wizardry are Digital Project Managers (DPMs). DPMs are the connective tissue that enable high-performing digital specialists to take a vision from back-of-the-napkin sketches into reality. These are the folks who work with clients and product managers to define the vision and organize the team that can fully realize that vision.
During this four-evening course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of building digital applications. After grounding you in the basics of Project Management and the definition of the DPM role, we’ll take a deeper dive into the specialists and the key deliverables needed to build your digital project. With that as a foundation, we will then show you how to connect these elements together through detailed planning and scheduling. We’ll also cover some deliverables and milestones that are becoming popular, and that can be useful depending on the type of project. Finally, we’ll address some of the tools that are in the utility belt of a typical DPM’er.
The course will consist of instruction and hands-on experiences to help you hit the ground running on your own digital projects.
This program is held over the course of 4 evenings to accommodate those with busy lives. You can see scheduled dates at the top right of this page.
