If, like most of us, you will be juggling projects and deadlines in 2016, consider attending one or both of the SAA workshops coming to Cleveland this March 10 & 11 at the Kelvin Smith Library.
Fundamentals of Project Management
Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH – March 10 – REGISTER HERE
You’re involved in a variety of projects every day, from such small projects as developing a new procedures manual to such large projects as digitizing a collection. But because project management methodologies aren’t automatically included in formal education or many archival education programs, you’ll want to take advantage of this workshop to acquire the basic knowledge and tools necessary for managing successful projects.
Advanced Project Management – NEW!
Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH – March 11 – REGISTER HERE
Building upon the basic project management skills you learned in Fundamentals of Project Management for Archivists, this workshop delves more deeply into skills you will need to manage more complex project or multiple projects at the same time. Some of the topics discussed include working with partners, risk management, change management, and quality management. You will also learn how to develop business case documentation that helps you get buy in from sponsors and stakeholders, kick off your project, and keep it on track. Finally, you will learn how to evaluate the project management process and the project outcomes to develop a project management methodology that works for you and your institution.
