Sharpen Your Management Skills

Management, when used as a noun, may evoke images of a person in the “corner office” or a dozen people sitting around a conference room table. But the action of managing? Well, that’s practiced every day, many times a day, by literally every employee. You are managing your day, your workload, your project, your task, your data.

With that in mind, the July 2018 issue of AUGIWorld offers a number of management-related articles relevant to all.

For example, Jeff Frye takes on “Managing Civil 3D Data”—beginning with the project kickoff meeting and continuing through standards, data shortcuts, and a lot more.

Brian Chapman delivers help for 3ds Max users in “Managing Assets for 3ds Max” in which he discusses integration and control of assets in production environments.

And there is much more in this issue to help you hone your management skills.
