“How the Project Manager role has evolved at the Financial Times”
Bogdana will take us on a journey starting with a brief historical overview and continuing into the future of the Project Manager role that has evolved from Project leadership into a Delivery management role at the Financial Times. The responsibilities of that role stem from the firm foundation of project management best practices and expand all the way to setting up empowered, autonomous teams and strategic processes for executing the product and technology visions.
What is the skillset and techniques needed for achieving such ambitious goals? How can teams be independent and well aligned at the same time? Why it matters to build upon the already proven organisational practices?
Find out how the Financial Times Product & Technology team answers these questions by attending this fun, interactive presentation.
