  • Project Management

    We have found that studios who can manage scope and ship a game early on learn more rapidly about the shifting elements that come with leading a games development project successfully. With this in mind team leaders are required to be good managers not only of their own allocated role but also have an overall understanding of the budget, the people and skills working on the project, timescales and many other roles that come with leading a games development project.
  • File types accepted doc, docx.
