NISO Training Series: Project Management for the Information Community: Managing and Communicating the Process, March 22, 2019, Session Five: Execution and Tracking for Success

The project is now in motion and the most challenging part is the execution. You can now use all the planning work to help manage it, including comparing the real to the ideal of your plan, and the ability to make changes as required. How do you support your team members when there are bumps in the road, or circumstances shift? We’ll review managing communications with the team and with stakeholders on an ongoing basis, followed by effectively closing a project. With an understanding of the basics of a predictive planning process, this session will entail a conversation with Kristine Sunda.
