Lessons I’ve learned from dysfunctional book projects

Over at Electric Book Works, my team and I distilled six key questions we ask when we want to diagnose problems with a project. Each question represents a lesson we’ve learned, over and over, when working on book- and web-publishing projects.

  1. Is there one leader and champion?
  2. Is there a single source of truth?
  3. Is there a reliable system for version control?
  4. Is content separated from design?
  5. Can everyone on the team open the files?
  6. Can we effortlessly export a finished publication?

Read more about why we ask those questions on the full post.
