How is project management different for creative projects?
I work in design and wonder how creative project differs from pm-ing projects in other fields.

The basic principles of project management don't vary but specific practices and lifecycles would need to fit the more adaptive nature of such projects.

For example, while you could still use a WBS to help decompose and define overall scope, you might have to take a time-boxed approach to managing certain creative activities which can't be easily estimated based on past data or similar projects.

The basics are the same but the trick and creativity is how you tailor the proceses to suit you industry and project to get the best and desired outcome.
