Event Detail

Session Description

Most successful digital agencies are at their breaking point: there is a full-fledged operations and delivery crisis going on. The reason?  Most agencies are selling better than they can deliver. Growth in the number and size of new projects and accounts lead to a form of management chaos that overwhelms operations. Client relationships that started as intense connections and collaborations become bogged down with slow production cycles.  Disenchanted and over-stressed teams deliver work that lacks the focus and energy of the pitch. Innovation suffers, satisfaction drops and margins are squeezed to nothing. Jack Skeels of AgencyAgile will share insights he’s learned from refocusing the operations of more than a dozen digital agencies in the past year.

Session Details:

When: Tuesday October 21st @ 6pm ET (US – NY time) OR Wednesday, October 22nd @ 12pm ET (US – NY time)

Where: Online
