Session Name: Producer Bootcamp: Pulling It All Together: Production in These Changing Times
Speaker(s): Caryl Shaw
Company Name(s): Amazon Game Services
Track / Format: Production & Team Management
Overview:

As game development evolves so does the role that production plays in the creation of the modern video game. New roles, and new types of games, require new skills, new tools and new methodologies. And also the flexibility to work with current systems when you join an established team. In this talk, Caryl Shaw will review the many different producer-adjacent roles that exist today, development directors, product managers, outsourcing producers, program managers, etc.; roles that require similar skills as a traditional production job, but also demand and compliment other areas of expertise someone might be bringing to the table. These different roles are often appropriate paths for producers to take who want to expand their scope of influence on a project. Additionally, this talk will talk about how some of these roles change and shift when moving from small teams to large teams and how different organizational methods can contribute to a successful product, either when you are building out a new team or transitioning into one with an established culture.
