Librarians are often required to lead, coordinate, or participate in many different projects simultaneously, yet project management training is often overlooked in information science training programs. In this hands-on workshop, learn the basic theories and practical techniques of project management, which will help you work with vendors, understand end-users, and communicate more effectively with stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle. You'll come away with a fresh understanding of how projects should be defined, planned, and executed in real-life situations using simple and free tools.

Who should attend:
Anyone in the library and archives communities interested in developing project management as a skill, including students and new grads

By the end of this program, participants will understand:

  • What is a project, and how do ideas get turned into projects?
  • What are the steps to planning a project, and how is a project plan best represented in writing?
  • What common pitfalls should be avoided to ensure a project's successful completion?
  • What are the best ways to communicate project status to stakeholders?
  • When and how should a completed project be evaluated?
