“Creative firms use a variety of project management methodologies. As project management methods are closely tied into the overall process that exists within an organization, organizations can get pretty creative in how they apply these methodologies. Sure, there are standard project management methodologies; and as an organization if you follow the standards, you really don’t have to go very far to adapt and design these standards to fit your own way of managing projects. You can borrow from what’s out there already, you’ll even find a bunch of process charts on this site that you can use a pretty starting point.
The reason we adapt these standards or adapt them to be our own is so that we can set the way we work — to best fit our company’s culture and the types of projects we create.”
