Project Management techniques are used in various settings from planning fundraisers, to the development of software applications, to government projects. Knowledge of project management techniques is critical for successful in future careers, in volunteer efforts, and for implementing personal or home projects. As special librarians and information professionals we are often called upon to manage projects; whether moving the library to a new location or deciding upon a new piece of software. In this session Kelly Lyons, Associate Professor at the University of Toronto iSchool, will provide an overview of the project management landscape, share some effective resources you can use without completing PM certification, and give pointers to those interested in exploring PM in greater depth.
