Project Management: Not a Contradiction In Terms

Some recent studies suggest that some 87% of large scale software development projects get delivered "late or never." To even out those odds, try taking the online class taught by Jasper Steutal at the Multimedia Studies Program of San Francisco State University.



Project Management: Strategy, Structure, Communication focuses on managing the production of Web applications. Students learn methods for managing the scope, budget and schedule of a project while maintaining the client relationship and keeping the production team focused and motivated. Production management methods are taught through real world examples and best practices of experienced producers. Additionally, students learn how to: document the architecture and infrastsructure of a Web application; layout production plans and requirement documents; manage media assets; assemble production teams; develop rollout plans.



In other words, bring 'em in on time and on budget.



The course lasts 12 weeks, and runs from Wed., Sept. 22-Dec. 15

The cost is $475.00, and best of all, you can take it naked.

Word of Mouth Daily!

Big doings at the Gershoni Studio party in lower North Beach at the historic studio of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera on Montgomery Street. Many business cards were exchanged, and a micro publishing business plan was hatched after a third or was it fourth mojito. Craig Newmark (he of the list) San Francisco's most eligible batchelor attended and trolled for scantily clad web interns. Go for it,  Craig. Turns out California is thinking of changing its motto from Eureka! to Go for It!
