From newsrooms to sales departments to Internet sites and converged 'information platforms', the business of information has changed and continues to change dramatically. In "Managing Media Convergence: Pathways to Journalistic Cooperation", author Kenneth Killebrew examines media management from a fresh perspective, exploring how to best manage creative people in times of change. This new addition to Blackwell Publishing's "Media and Technology" series discusses the role of the journalist/broadcaster and other creative people charged with providing information in newly emerging cross-platform environments of converged media.By investigating creativity - coupled with notions of power, convergence, the changing work environment and traditional management methods - "Managing Media Convergence" unravels the dilemma of how to retain highly creative people. The necessary skill sets to achieve in a converged media world - of those who would manage and those who would be managed - are clarified and contrasted against traditional organizational approaches. Managerial expediency, efficiency, and effectiveness are considered through discussions of best practices and case studies.
With the bottom-line focus of today's media management on increasing profits and cash flow, "Managing Media Convergence" shows how workers and managers can successfully meet the challenges of the new media workplace.
