Review

 "At last, the interactive project management book I've been waiting for! With humor, wisdom, and glorious common sense, the authors tackle not just process but the people you depend on for success. Stands head and shoulders above any other book that's been written on the topic." ― Kristina Halvorson, Author of Content Strategy for the Web

“Nancy and Meghan take the drudgery out of process and put heart and intention into it. They make a usually dry topic easy to understand.” – Dondeena Bradley, Vice President, Nutrition Ventures, PepsiCo

"Clockwork's process made our site redesign not only manageable, but educational and refreshingly open. They were engaged partners, and expected the same from our team, too. At every step, there was structure, organization, and purpose, which are invaluable qualities for anyone and everyone working on interactive projects." – Jennifer Chrisler,  Executive Director, Family Equality Council

What a great book! I have a strong software engineering background but Nancy and Meghan are right. They say "The interactive industry is a little like advertising and a little like software, but it’s also something altogether different…". As far as I know, this is the only book that bridges the gap between software engineering and advertising for use in Digital Projects.

The provide good background for their supposition and then provide a step by step guide to a process they have used that really makes sense for this space. Breaking the process down into Front End and Back End as well as breaking it down into a Research and Execution phase is spot on. Their process is simple, clear and makes sense. And you can "tweak" it so it is suitable for your organization or situation.

If you are starting to work in an "Agency" and come from a traditional "High Tech" background this will be very helpful. And it is a fun read....

4.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend this book to anyone who may be transitioning from ... 8 Aug. 2015
By Marni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was a well-written overview of the various phases of managing interactive projects, including the key roles, documents and processes involved. As a seasoned large-scale IT project manager who is moving into the digital space, I found this book to be a helpful introduction to some of the subtle differences between managing traditional technology projects vs. interactive projects. The conversational writing style and breakout sections highlighting key points and questions kept me engaged while still providing an appropriate level of detail. I would recommend this book to anyone who may be transitioning from a role as a leader of more traditional IT/consulting engagements to a role as an interactive project leader. Some of the concepts and processes are very obvious if you have come from a traditional project management background (e.g. requirements traceability, the importance of testing, deployment planning, etc.) but I was able to see how similar methods and processes will apply in the interactive space, leveraging a more iterative development process.
5.0 out of 5 stars One process doesn't fit all, and this book gets it. 2 Jun. 2016
By Ashly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book two years ago, and I still refer to it regularly as an inspiration. One process doesn't fit all, which makes this book a real winner. It isn't strictly prescriptive, and describes a comprehensive process to help you consider what that "ideal" process might be for you to establish a custom benchmark. This book considers many different kinds of team members, which allows you to mold its principles across your organization no matter the structure. I can't thank the ladies of Clockwork enough for putting this together. My fingers are crossed for another edition after a few years to see how they've iterated!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Must Read 29 May 2012
By Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Clearly, Nancy and Meghan understand and appreciate the intricacies of working with small and large projects and the nuances of the various layers and relationships (think project manager, marketing, IT, strategists, etc.).

Before launching into the `process' (Ch 5 - Getting digital done right), they wisely nudge the reader into a great conversation about emotional intelligence and communication. After all "the web is about people: they make it and they use it."

This a about `how to think' about successful interactive projects and the text is replete with great lessons about how to approach people, tasks, stages, and phases within a project. Part epistemology/theory and part process/praxis, there are pearls here for everyone on the team, from the project manager to the client and everyone who (and who doesn't) `interact' digitally. This is both `How to Get it Right' and 'Why It Works'!

Interactive Project Management is about good processes and people, making people work better - and together!

Purchased this book for a Masters program as required reading. I'm pleased the class is quite easy after my previous class but this book is very simple. Reads more like a pamphlet than a text book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book w Real World Examples 4 Oct. 2013
By San Diego Trout - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been working in project management for about 20 years. But - I still learn new things every day! This book opened (re-opened) my eyes to the big picture - project management isn't just about understanding the technical side - understanding the entire team picture is critical. Chapter 3 on EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE was particularly useful for me! I get the technology and the technical aspects of being a PM - but all too often, I forget the social/emotional side of the workplace. I also especially like the real examples Nancy and Meghan use from their experience in 'interactive project management' - it paints a vivid picture of what a 'day in the life of a PM' is like. Finally, don't let the cover fool you - it says GEEK GIRLS GUIDE - but it is also great reading for GEEK GUYS! I highly recommend this read!
