More and more often, we are seeing libraries of all kinds engaging in complex and collaborative projects that involve multiple stakeholders – yet, formal project management training is a skill-set that is only beginning to be viewed as essential to the cost-effective and successful implementation of projects in the workplace.
This session brings together librarians from public, academic and a library consortia in one space to talk about their experience with project management (or lack thereof) and how they’ve been successful or not in filling this skill-set. Suggestions for how project management skills can be attained through the workplace and professional development opportunities will be shared.
-Development and understanding of essential project management skills.
-Strategies for building project management capacity in your workplace.
-Project management tools (free and paid) that professionals are using.
