Clear communication—As the account manager for internal clients and stakeholders, Studio Managers must have strong interpersonal skills and be able to effectively manage stakeholder expectations while simultaneously upholding the vision and standards of Adobe Studio.
Problem-solving ability—Setting appropriate expectations, managing conflict, and tracking resources is challenging. To succeed, Studio Managers and Project Coordinators need strong problem-solving skills and must negotiate deadlines with stakeholders, making appropriate resource trade-offs in a fast-moving and ever- changing environment.
