Managing Multi-Team Magento Projects

Multi-team environments are becoming a reality, and Magento agencies have a new challenge in front of them – how to cater to most of their clients’ ecommerce needs?

Multi-country, multi-language, multi-currency installations, omni-channel customer experience, complex integrations, extensive marketing campaigns – all of these require focused expertise that’s seldom found in a single agency, so leading such a project requires specific management artistry as a good Magento agency needs to manage various relationships in any given project.

Whether you are an agency going down the outsourcing route or you prefer to establish transparent partnerships with key industry partners, there’s a lot of ground to cover in any complex project – in this lecture I’ll give an overview of basic principles that, if adopted, can make your lives easier and your clients happier (all based on real-life examples).

Merchants will learn about main challenges in a multi-team project so they can also pay special attention to focusing on their main strengths while establishing a trusting relationship with a Magento agency.

A tips and tricks takeaway section is also included.
