Tuesday, March 27 2018 1:00pm (America/Chicago)

Based on a panel discussion at BCMC 2017, this webinar will cover some best practices for managing a variety of design issues, from training designers and overseeing the design process, to tracking design work, errors and the associated costs. Come with questions about strategies to minimize and mitigate design mistakes, and leave with tips on how to manage mistake tracking data and recognize designers whose work is mistake free.
