Project Management in Newsrooms

Abstract

#newsrooms #management #business

This guide aims to help anyone interested in practising project management in a newsroom environment to do so effectively.

Reporters and editors with no previous project management experience will benefit from our practical overview about the role of project managers in a newsroom environment. The guide demystifies and lays out best practices for each stage of an editorial project's lifecycle from planning and execution through to project wrap-up.

"Better project management skills are critical to the continued survival of the news industry. We continue to face rapid changes in technology and reader habits that require us to reinvent how we work. We can only discover new best practices through doing. This means more experiments, more work that falls outside of ‘business as usual’, and more one-off efforts - in other words, more projects." – Robin Kwong
