It's great to read articles like this which highlight the importance of solid Project Management.

When I was made redundant from my design job, I actually ended up citing my client & process management skills as relevant experience in order to get a Project Management role.

A year or two on, and I'm now a Senior PMgr, am a qualified and accredited member of the Association for Project Management, and am finding that PM't skills are more useful than ever in my design work!

Keep up the great work, as always.


Good thoughts for designers, especially those on their own and in small firms. Designers often try to avoid the business side, but if then can plan for it and embrace it to a degree, success becomes much more likely.
