Our Vision

Our goal is to elevate the conversation surrounding digital, leadership, and the world of digital project management.

digital project manager vision

There’s loads of general project management knowledge and resources out there in the caverns of the interweb—a lot of it can be directly applied to IT or software development, but it doesn’t apply so easily to more rogue, fast and loose projects of today’s growing number of digital agencies. Within the everyday campaigns and deliverables of digital project management, the standardized, process-heavy methodologies don’t work as well in world where crazy clients, tiny budgets, and stupid deadlines dominate the scene.

That’s why we created The Digital Project Manager: to provide specialized digital project management guidance that draws on existing frameworks such as Prince2, SCRUM and PMP, but that’s engineered to work within the Wild West of digital marketing and communications, particularly in agencies and studios. Our aim is to empower a community of digital project managers to learn from one another.

These are the experts that bring you what is the freshest in the Wild West of digital project management.
