Building Efficiencies into Your Drupal Practice

Scott Weston

How to you give every client a great, handcrafted solution in Drupal while maintaining a lean and efficient Drupal team?

The presentation will cover several ideas and concepts to building a profitable and efficient Drupal practice. Whether you're an independent consultancy of one or a large team of 20, keeping these concepts in mind will help you approach your Drupal work in a way that will free your team to focus on delivering great results.

We will help you answer these questions:

  • What types of skills make up an efficient Drupal team?
  • What are some practical ways that a Drupal team can increase efficiency?
  • How can a Drupal team stay motivated and engaged without experiencing burnout?
  • How can project managers help with efficiency?

Audience: This presentation is focused toward project managers and team leaders of small to mid-size Drupal teams that are looking to grow efficiency. Leaders of larger teams that are light on processes may find some strategies to help their practices as well!

The presentation will not cover a specific version of Drupal. It will cover some general concepts of Drupal development such as features, configuration management, and custom modules. Attendees with at least a very basic understading of Drupal will get the most from this session.
