Session Name Game Studio Management: Making It Great
Speaker(s) Jesse Schell
Company Name(s) Schell Games LLC
Track / Format Business, Marketing & Management
Overview Management is difficult, managing a game studio is incredibly difficult, since most studio management has no formal training, and no one ever seems clear on the "right" way to run things. In the last 12 years Jesse has grown a game studio from a solo operation to a thriving enterprise of 100 developers working on 6-8 titles simultaneously. In this nuts and bolts talk, Jesse will share the concrete methods he has found to keep a studio happy, healthy and producing great games. Topics covered will include:
  • What meetings are the right ones?
  • How to manage multiple simultaneous projects
  • How to grow without destroying your culture
  • The importance of a mentoring culture
  • How to see the invisible information flow in your studio
  • The connection between morale, purpose and great games
