A tale of PM process refinement

From music producer to full-fledged digital PM—handling a full project load—in less than a year.

The biggest impact has been our project manager’s ability to handle conversations with clients about timeline and scope. It’s freed me up to focus on sales and strategy knowing he owns daily client interactions.

If you want to gain more experience in digital PM, work with Louder Than Ten. Your time with them and the information you gain is practical and real. The training refined my approach to talking to my team and clients, lean documentation, and the planning that I have now. Most of all, I know my skills bring value to our shop.
