Introduction to Project Management (03/20/18)

Project management is the “who, what, when, where, why, how much, and how” of library organizations: goals, budgets, deadlines, and standards of quality and customer service. It can be as simple as a bulletin board with index cards, but it requires clear and timely communication by people who are willing and able to say “no”. Learn the basic rules that apply to almost any task and why every thing that happens in a library is a project.

Participants will:

  • Improve time management with better planning.
  • Set deadlines with defaults, in case goals are not met.
  • Set time aside in projects for management overhead, meaning documentation and communication.
