As positions shift, and responsibilities flex, many librarians, archivists and visual resources professionals find themselves working on project-based teams, or in an environment that asks them to manage multiple projects at once for different stakeholders and with different timelines. Taking on this work is rewarding and can expand your role, increasing your value to an institution. But, it can be a new, tricky, and occasionally frustrating way of working. This workshop will address the fundamentals of project management, project management buzzwords, and strategies for success. Lectures and discussion will cover personal and project time management, working across teams and with different personalities, tracking and assessing progress, being flexible (agile), and reporting. Discussion will highlight examples relevant to libraries, archives and museums of different sizes and scope. Workshop facilitators will provide project planning templates, productivity tips and tricks, and other helpful resources. Endorsed by the Education Committee (VRA)
