Session Name:

Avoiding Failure 101 (Small Studio Edition)


Oh no! Things aren't going as perfectly as you'd hoped and planned! How will your studio survive the setbacks you're facing? How can you deal with - gasp - failure? This talk is all about the steps small teams can take to help insulate against unforeseen, unexpected, and unwelcome problems. Tips for building a studio that doesn't rely on having a break-out hit are reviewed, as are common pitfalls. Advice is given on weathering storms, avoiding meltdowns, averting catastrophes, and defeating the gum disease gingivitis.
