Overview

We all strive for perfection but in reality there are times where mistakes happen. How we choose to deal with them determines our chances at success.

This is a candid conversation sharing past scenarios where mistakes or learning led to necessary course corrections – often resulting in better outcomes. Common mistakes to be discussed: unclear objectives, people pitching don’t talk to the people making, budgeting, bad hires, lack of testing, partnerships gone sour and more.

Objective

To help those involved in the planning and running of interactive projects to avoid common mistakes and get on the path to success with fewer bumps in the road.

Target Audience

People involved in the planning and running of interactive projects: entrepreneurs, executives, project managers, producers.

Five Things Audience Members Will Learn

  1. It’s okay to say no – but ask for time to review, research, and regroup with alternative solutions
  2. Never work alone, surround yourself with people who have experience and solutions
  3. Always have a contingency budget and plan
  4. Take time to learn and stay informed by regularly looking at case studies, attend talks and lectures
  5. Do post-mortems within 10 days of every project you finish
