    Welcome to the forum Ella. Please read these important threads posted HERE and especially HERE. They will explain a lot about how the forum runs, from the rules and regulations to frequently discussed topics to the background on some of our lingo and inside jokes.
    This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

      From AIGA's salary survey: http://designsalaries.org/

      "A production manager is responsible for running the process of producing design projects, overseeing bids, production schedules and delivery."

        Is that all it says??? I can think of about 20 other things that fall under the PM umbrella.

          Same here. How about 'Persuading vendors, designers, etc. (via sweet-talking, bribery, etc.) to compensate for lost schedule time incurred by executive approval delays'. That's pretty major in most places where I've worked.

          Here's Aquent's blurb from the print (PDF) of the Canadian 2007 survey:

          Print Production Manager
          A print production manager is responsible for
          managing the process (bids, scheduling, production
          and delivery) of producing design projects,
          from concept through production, including
          photography, separations, four-color press work,
          as well as digital production. Print production
          managers are strong project managers, managing
          multiple jobs simultaneously.

            Don't forget mind reading, hand holding and playground monitor.

              Don't forget that the Production Manager needs to dish out and take jokes and abuse from cheeky printers.
              It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh
