Working with PMs: A Q&A with Whitney Hess

I am so happy to post the first of what I hope to be a series of project management-related interviews with web development professionals. To me, a lot of what we do as web project managers relies on an understanding of what our team does on a daily basis, and how we can ultimately help them to achieve their project goals. My hope is that these interviews will offer some insight on how project managers can facilitate great work.

She’s not just a highly regarded experience designer; she speaks, she blogs, she writes, and she tweets with the best of them! I knew she’d be great to talk to, because she has provided some great feedback to me on the subject in the recent past. And really, in a way, Whitney gave me some inspiration to start this blog.

It's an interview series that focuses on the role of Project Management in the life of other web professionals. I've recruited some great friends and colleagues to dish the dirt on what makes them tick and how project managers can make sure they keep ticking. I'll be speaking with designers, developers, user experience designers, writers, account people, and any one else willing to talk to me. Read more
