There are successes and challenges with every Drupal project you tackle and these experiences are different for both the client and consultant.  In this session we will share with you our experiences as project managers in both roles; sharing both our past experiences and our experience completing a project together – the website for the National Council on Family Relations (www.ncfr.org).  These tips will help you avoid potential hurdles and delays that can threaten a successful project.

Here are some of the topics we will cover in this session:

From the Client’s Perspective

  • Building and managing a successful internal team
  • Managing your team’s feedback
  • Creating and implementing a content strategy

From the Consultant’s Perspective

  • Identifying your project stakeholders
  • Defining project boundaries – budget, scope, and timeline
  • Defining your client’s role in the project & managing this relationship
