Project management isn't easy. Scoping, budget, attention to detail and all the soft skills that come with it when managing projects as part of a wider team can be quite challenging. Digital or not — this podcast will help you to better organise, coordinate and review projects thanks to the wisdom of Digital 22's project pros, Tom and Faizal. 

 

It's not all spreadsheets and timelines either. 

The guys talk about the people behind the projects, the importance of good old-fashioned conversation and controversially, the fact that delivery isn't always highest on the agenda.
