NISO Webinar, Cost Effective Product and Project Management

In a time of economic recovery, there is no bottomless well of resources. Managers must look closely at the budgetary requirements for delivering cost-effective projects and products. What is the best way to build your case as it goes before the decision-makers? If you’re working under the pressures of agile development, how can you plan for changes and budget appropriately? How can product and project managers get the resources they need when every expenditure is under scrutiny? How can you prepare for the unexpected? This roundtable discussion featured experienced product and project managers, sharing the useful tips and practices they’ve learned during their own careers.  Confirmed participants in this Roundtable include Maureen Adamson, Principal, Maureen Adamson & Associates; Judson Dunham, Senior Director, Product Management, Elsevier; Paul Shannon, Head of Technology, eLife; and Donna Shaw, Director of Product Management, EBSCO.
