Event Name:
Collaboration, Evaluation, and Iteration: The Agile Approach to Project Management in Libraries

Project Management


We have all heard the saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” This is the essence of Agile Project Management. In contrast to more traditional project management methodologies, Agile puts the emphasis on consistent collaboration, evaluation, and iteration throughout the project lifecycle to increase the possibility of a successful deliverable. Much of the work done in libraries is in the form of projects (e.g., a new program, the redesign of a space, or a library-wide collection audit). In this webinar, we will discuss Agile Project Management and the benefits of utilizing and adapting this methodology when embarking on a new library project, big or small.  


Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand the principles of Agile Project Management and how they compare to other methods of project management.  
  • Examine the benefits of utilizing Agile when managing library projects.  
  • Explore possible adaptations of the Agile method and discuss the process of implementation. 
  • Discuss specific examples of library projects and how Agile could be applied.
