What makes a great game producer?
In this 2017 GDC session, Gearbox Software's Aaron Thibault shares his perspective on the question by sharing some advice on how producers might work smarter to help game development teams work more efficiently while building trust with each other.
Offering concrete examples from his own work at Gearbox and elsewhere, Thibault guided the audience through the steps of implementing new techniques and tools (like personalized progress charts) to improve their work and that of their colleagues, while simultaneously managing morale and fostering a sense of team spirit.
It was a fascinating deep dive into the art of game production, so if you haven't seen it yet, take advantage of the fact that Thibault's talk is now available to watch for free over on the official GDC YouTube channel!
