Project Management Workshop – Polonsky Fellows 2016

May 24th, 2016|0 Comments

Working on a digital project can feel like falling down a rabbit hole
As new complexities and problems arise the work can begin to take up lots of unexpected time.
Proper project management can help you gauge the rabbit hole’s depth and control your descent.

Project Processes and Mentality

  • Projects are processes, embrace change and adaptation
  • Plan, organize, change, replan, reorganize
  • Re-draft schedules regularly
    • Give yourself target dates but don’t be afraid to adjust where you need to be.
    • Not meant to be anxiety inducing but flow producing.
    • Always be thinking about and planning for what is next as you move forward.
  • Build in iterations in the form of writing progress reports, drafts, etc.
  • Keep in communication and make sure entire team is on the same page. Schedule regular meetings, be they in-face, video calls, or text chats.

“Every second of every minute in every corner of the globe someone is experiencing the Disney difference.” – Video Billboard over The Disney Store, Times Square New York

Introduction: Investing in a Corporate Vision of Scope

Disney is almost necessarily the central figure for any work done on corporate theatre since the early 1990s. As legislation limiting concentration of media ownership dissolved in the 1990s, and cultural production increasingly became one of the most important sectors in the American economy, Disney–already a cultural powerhouse–saw an ascendancy across a wide spectrum of media that for the first time included Broadway musicals. This ascendancy was in large part due to then CEO Michael Eisner’s programmatic expansion of the horizontal and vertical integration of Disney’s interests throughout American culture. This included not only the expansion into theatrical […]
