About COEx

Two Tracks

Back by popular demand: Fresh topics catered to senior project managers!

Last fall we introduced a new offering, a dedicated track addressing the specific challenges of creative project management. We’ll be bringing it back in 2020 with updated content for senior project managers and beyond. Our other track will continue the conversation in advanced creative operations with udpates that will include C-suite leaders and their perspective on creative ops. Take advantage of the learning options and bring more team members— heck, your whole department!

Virtual in 2020

As meeting in-person is not feasible in our current cultural reality, we are excited to launch a virtual Creative Operations Exchange. We are eager to connect you with insights from Creative Ops industry leaders, even if it’s from behind a computer screen. We are working hard to provide the same information-rich sessions that you have come to expect from COEx, along with plenty of opportunities for connecting with your peers.

Key topics will include


Creative Operations Track:
  • A conversation among creative ops leaders’ most important stakeholders—find out what a CMO, CFO, COO, and Executive Creative Director expect of you and your department and how you can strengthen those relationships and your team’s effectiveness
  • Charge-back Model—Determining if a full or partial model is best for your department and lessons learned to ensure a seamless implementation. Plus! How to get buy-in to make the switch.
  • Learn how experts build a business case for new tools, demonstrate cost/benefit of new technologies, and future-proof operations while improving efficiency.
Creative Project Management Track:
  • The pros and cons of different approaches to project management—agile, waterfall, scrum, Kanban, lean, and more—and finding which works best for your team
  • Elevate your role—how to move from being reactive to proactive and discover how this will improve your team’s efficiency and effectiveness while helping to advance your career
  • Bringing personality to project management and developing the soft skills to increase your effectiveness
