Our Vision

To Elevate the Conversation Surrounding Digital Work, Leadership, and the World of Digital Project Management

There’s loads of general project management knowledge and resources out there in the caverns of the interweb—a lot of it applies to IT or software development but falls short for the rogue, fast-and-loose projects in today’s growing number of digital agencies. The standardized, process-heavy methodologies don’t fit the everyday workings of digital project management—a world in constant flux, where rules are broken as fast as they’re made.

That’s why we created The Digital Project Manager.

Here, we provide specialized digital project management guidance that draws on existing frameworks such as PRINCE2, Scrum, Scaled Agile, Kanban, and Waterfall, but that’s engineered to work within the dynamic world of digital marketing and web application development, particularly in agencies and studios. We empower a community of digital project managers to contribute to the evolving playbook of DPM, sharing their expertise and learning from one another.
