Project Management Techniques for Game Development
Someone has to manage all the kids designing your game. Game Developers are an odd breed, even compared to the “laid back” IT development culture most companies have. Effectively managing a high-energy, highly creative group of Game Developers requires a certain type of IT project management skill set. Our Game Development Project Management course has everything you need as a Project Manager to effectively keep costs and timelines under control, as well as manage a team of creative game developers.
