Session 1

Library Project Management 101, Part 1

Tuesday, June 11, 2019, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. CT

This session will introduce library staff to the basics of project
management. We will consider what we mean by a ‘project’ in the first place
and discuss the different types of projects there are. This session will
explain the different stages of starting, planning, implementing and
closing a project and introduce some common terminology used in project
management. It will outline some of the different project management
methodologies so that participants can start becoming familiar with names
such as Prince 2, Agile, Critical path and Integrated project management.

Session 2

Library Project Management 101, Part 2

Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. CT

This session follows on from part 1 and will discuss the make up of a
project team and what the team needs to be effective. We will consider the
various stakeholders that might work with the project team or who might be
affected by the changes made, and what considerations we might need to make
in order to create effective working practices. This session will also
introduce participants to the role of technology within project management
and discuss different tools and their uses.
