Managing Projects Hub: combining project management, intranets, and UX

About my talk

Project management approaches can divide organisations, with personal methodologies creating: information management nightmares; chaotic user experiences; and uncomfortable project misunderstandings, usually around critical elements such as budget and risk.

This presentation gives an honest view of what’s involved in creating a single project management framework and designing a project management hub for a university. Featuring lessons learnt, success stories and battle scars, I’ll share:

  • Developing a project management framework ‘by the users, for the users’
  • Tackling project information management
  • Tips for designing an intranet “project management hub”
