I just attended Monitorama 2017 in Portland, and I wanted to talk about my experience! I think it’s useful for me as a brain-dump and reflection about what I took away from the talks, but it’s also nice for other people to have some more insight into what the conference is about.
This past week, a couple of us at Metal Toad traveled down to San Francisco for WWDC and AltConf. There were a ton of great sessions and presentations throughout the week, and we’d like to share the best of the best with you.
The videos directly from Apple are already available, the videos from AltConf aren’t yet, but we’ll post part 2 when they become available.
The Digital PM Summit took place earlier this week in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Two great days of listening to speakers and mingling with attendees later, I came away extremely pleased with the inaugural event and already look forward to next year. There were many great highlights, and not surprisingly given the project management background of Brett Harned and the summit team, things were extremely well planned and executed. Below are just a few of the highlights from conference sessions!
When I told people that I was going to the inaugural digital project management summit, I'm not sure they knew what that meant. Is it a bunch of Gantt Charts, Process Diagrams, and Risk Assessment spreadsheets? While those are important parts of project management, my takeaways from this conference related to the soft skills of project management. The primary focus of the conference was around communication and collaboration with the client and your project team.
