Freshly Baked, Digital Project Management Goodness

The Daily Process Mess

By | Dear DPM, General | No Comments

We are a digital marketing agency and we have a small team of 4 people handling around 20 clients. We’ve tried Scrum and, like you said, the time spent in the rituals as ridiculous and they quickly got sidelined.

When the site is done being developed, it goes through an internal review and QA process where the DPMs are hands-off and expect other team members to manage the backlog and prioritization.

Why Not Me?

Ugh, so I can’t stop thinking about this side job that I was up for and didn’t get. I can’t stop thinking about why I wasn’t picked!!

HELP.
