Session Name: Producer Bootcamp: People Management Survival Guide
Speaker(s): Ethan Levy
Company Name(s): FamousAspect
Track / Format: Production
Overview: As you ascend the ranks of game development seniority, it is common for people management to be forced upon your already overflowing task list. Proficient management is essential to keeping your team happy, motivated and hitting deliverables. Yet, management is an entirely different skillset than the core competency that made you a senior or lead. At EA, Ethan underwent a transition from having no management experience to managing 19 direct reports while leading a project as a producer. In this talk, he will present the mythical survival guide he prayed for from the first day he was asked to manage his colleagues.
