How To Deliver More Value As A Digital PM (And Get Recognized For It)

The perception of a digital project manager’s value ranges wildly: sometimes we are dismissed by clients and team members as “overhead” and “dead weight”. Other times we’re regarded as superheroes and praised as indispensable servant-leaders.

What is it that causes this wide range of opinions, and what can we do to make our value better understood by the people we work with?

In this workshop, DPM Expert Galen Low teaches his approach to translating, demonstrating, and showcasing your true value as a digital PM so that the role you play is not just acknowledged, but is seen as instrumental to the project’s success.
