Interactive projects require a different approach and an industry-specific process. This is a complex challenge because interactive projects are chaotic by nature, yet some sense of order must be imposed. The key is a good process, and the key to that is a focus on people. From every angle, interactive projects are about people: those who commission, design, develop, and deploy projectsas well as the end users. The interactive work itself entails elements of software development, marketing, and advertising, yet its neither purely technical nor traditional agency work. Delivery methods are different, and concepts are new, which creates a wide gap in understanding between the clients buying the work and teams planning and executing it.
Interactive Project Management: Pixels, People, and Process is a unique guide to understanding the critical role of interactive projects in order to launch and execute successfully. Its really more of a how-to-think guide than a how-to-do guide, which makes this people-focused approach effective across a wide range of interactive projects. In addition, this book will explain the:
- Unique Characteristics of Interactive Projects
