Full Steam Ahead
We had quite a large meeting yesterday that seemed to consist of most people in most departments and oddly enough it was in the second biggest conference room. So after people gathered extra chairs and everyone amassed into the room, we found out that we had gotten quite a large project. It might be the biggest thing we’ve ever gotten and everyone was gathered into that room because it is going to take help from all of the people there to get it done on time and up to standards. Planning for the goal product has already been established, so now it is up to the workers to make the plan a reality. Both graphic designers will need to create assortments of layouts and custom designs for this online learning tool. Flash programming, database programming, and video editing will keep the video studio and programming staff busy. The project coordinator for this project will also have her hands full managing all of these people and project pieces. Bi-weekly meetings are planned to keep everyone informed and keep the work flow transparent. Hopefully that will help keep everyone on the same page and on time for the proposed launch date. It may be a long time away (April 2010 or 23 Mondays), but there should be a lot to do leading up to then for a lot of people. I wonder if we’ll still be doing other projects once this starts going full steam. Either way it looks like busy times ahead at DDA. Full Steam Ahead!
