Summary

It seems like it’s harder than ever for agencies to get great work out the door. And more often than not, everyone is blaming “the process.” But repairing a broken workflow requires more than examining your process standards. It requires taking an honest look at your teams and their mindsets. Maybe it's time to stop hiring project managers and hire producers instead.

  • The differences between a "producer" and a "project manager"
  • Why being part of the work—instead of merely managing work effort—is necessary for effective production
  • 5 things to look for when you’re changing your organization’s workflow mindset
