Our slides from MuseumNext 2014 in Newcastle.

Presented by:
Gavin Mallory, Head of Production, Cogapp
Chris How, Head of UX, Cogapp

This interactive masterclass will explore the complexities of digital project management through the prism of Michelangelo’s magnificent artwork, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo delivered this masterpiece in the face of feature creep, creative tension, slipped deadlines and unreasonable demands. Cogapp’s digital masterclass, informed by the nearly 30 years of experience, will give strategies and practical advice on how to achieve a similar degree of excellence for your digital endeavours no matter what obstacles you might face.

This masterclass will give you some usable tips to take away and test out on your own digital projects. It will be fun and interactive with post it notes, card sorting and art.
