Large, complex Web projects often have many different moving parts and are overseen by diverse groups of stakeholders with competing goals and motivations. Whether you’re someone who develops Web solutions for other people or are part of an in-house team, success in these situations requires discipline, understanding, and empathy, which are also values frequently explored in children’s literature. In this non-technical session, we’ll take a look at what classic books like "Amelia Bedelia" and "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel” have to teach us about how to manage Web projects. We’ll cover topics that include managing stakeholders, positive negotiation techniques, and keeping budget, timeline, and scope on track.
