Scott Berkun to Head the Schedule of Managing Design Projects!

We are happy to announce that Scott Berkun will keynote our Managing Design Projects conference in February. This is very exciting for us and having heard Scott present in the past I am confident he will really get things off on the right foot. We have also posted the schedule of the day’s activities to give everyone a taste of what is to come.

As my colleague Julia mentioned a few weeks ago, after looking for events that focused on project management we found the field largely dominated by tools developers (Hello Microsoft!) and the Project Management Institute both of which didn’t feel like they addressed the particular needs of project managers who work in the design field. So we created our own!

The goals of the event are to identify some best practices, common work-arounds, key tools and begin a conversation with our peers that we have admired seeing our colleagues enjoy with both the IXDA and IA Summit. Since PMs don’t necessarily go to the same places to get information about how they do their work and how they can do it better, I am asking you to forward this to a PM that you know.

As this is the first time we are holding this type of an event, we have priced it below our other events at a thrifty $249. As of January 15th the price will increase to $295. If you have 2008 education budget left you can take advantage of the current event sale that will give you an additional %15 off until 2009! What a deal!
