Over the last 12 years, game industry veteran Jesse Schell has kept his studio, Schell Games (Enemy Mind
, Pirates of the Caribbean
) afloat and expanded it from a solo operation to a thriving enterprise of 100 developers working on 6-8 titles simultaneously.
Now he's coming to GDC 2015 in March to explain how he does it. In a talk titled "Game Studio Management: Making It Great," Schell will dig into the nuts and bolts of how to keep your company happy, healthy and productive.
He plans to cover a variety of issues -- from simple stuff like identifying skippable meetings, to complex management challenges like expanding your ranks and taking on multiple projects without losing your studio culture. The talk will offer lessons for anyone with an interest in improving their studio's operations.
Conference organizers look forward to announcing more GDC 2015 sessions in the months ahead. In the meantime, don't miss your chance to save money by registering early -- the deadline to register for passes
