As an industry, interactive is different. The work entails elements of software development, marketing, and advertising, yet it’s neither purely technical nor traditional “agency” work.

Editorial Reviews

 "At last, the interactive project management book I've been waiting for! With humor, wisdom, and glorious common sense, the authors tackle not just process but the people you depend on for success. Stands head and shoulders above any other book that's been written on the topic." — Kristina Halvorson, Author of Content Strategy for the Web “Nancy and Meghan take the drudgery out of process and put heart and intention into it. They make a usually dry topic easy to understand.” – Dondeena Bradley, Vice President, Nutrition Ventures, PepsiCo "Clockwork's process made our site redesign not only manageable, but educational and refreshingly open. They were engaged partners, and expected the same from our team, too. At every step, there was structure, organization, and purpose, which are invaluable qualities for anyone and everyone working on interactive projects." – Jennifer Chrisler,  Executive Director, Family Equality Council
