NISO Training Series: Project Management for the Information Community: Managing and Communicating the Process, March 1, 2019, Session Two: Initiating the Project

A successful project always begins with a clear statement of objectives agreed upon by all stakeholders. How is this defined and documented? What type of project is it, i.e. clear goals or does it involve considerable uncertainty or change? What resources are needed? How do you form teams and communicate effectively, especially when work cuts across organizational lines? This second session will show attendees how to correctly define and document project goals, establish preliminary milestones and indicators of success. Attendees will come away with understanding how to identify key stakeholders and recognize potentially intangible motivations for the project.
