About this session
We are EA and we make video games! We entertain millions of people across the globe, with the most immersive and interactive software in the industry. As project managers within EA, we run large and complex projects where our teams span multiple locations across the globe. Our challenges are complex and require innovation and creative problem-solving. We work with passionate game makers from a variety of disciplines including software engineering, art, analytics, and production & design. Video games are big business – even bigger than movies and music! Join us for a session where we get into the details on how we manage the development of the EA SPORTS FIFA franchise played by tens of millions of fans around the world. From a Project Management perspective, let us walk you through the high level process and the complexities of developing the most popular sports game on Planet Earth, what it takes to ensure the highest quality bar in time for our strict manufacturing dates, and the daily support required to ensure our players have a fun and engaging experience every time they hit the pitch!
