About Louder Than Ten

Louder Than Ten is a small but mighty remote school for digital project management and operations for small-to-medium digital agencies and departments, teams, and product studios. We use the world of project management to shift power and make companies more democratic and sustainable. We don't buy into the boring, traditional methodologies that treat people like numbers. We see project leaders as the nucleus of their projects, teams, and process and they have the power to design a world that works for all of us.

“My appren­tice­ship with Loud­er Than Ten was a con­di­tion of my first year of employ­ment as a new Dig­i­tal Project Man­ag­er and I’m for­ev­er grate­ful that was the case. I can­not imag­ine start­ing my PM jour­ney with­out them because their exper­tise, care, com­mu­ni­ty, train­ing, and resources put the imposter syn­drome at ease.

If you’re a new PM, a sea­soned PM, or hir­ing a PM, do your­self jus­tice and vis­it their site and/​or at least con­nect with them. Loud­er Than Ten has sup­port­ed me through my jour­ney of learn­ing dig­i­tal project man­age­ment in the agency space and has con­tin­ued sup­port­ing me post agency. Rachel, Travis, and team go beyond the class­room and that’s why they’re the best because they gen­uine­ly care about you, your suc­cess, and the suc­cess of your company.”
