NISO Training Series: Project Management for the Information Community: Managing and Communicating the Process, March 8, 2019, Session Three: The Setup

This session delves deeper into creating a project plan. For illustration, we will review how to set up a simple predictive (‘waterfall’ style) project plan. What functional skills are needed to do the work? How do you build your team? What types of time commitments will you be requesting and for what tasks? How do you define the roles and responsibilities? How do you negotiate for resources with stakeholders, handle meetings and communications? Your preparedness in thinking through such issues and communicating with decision makers and team members will be critical to success.
