Summary
This book provides a 'no-nonsense' guide to project management which enables library and information practitioners to lead or take part in a wide range of projects from large-scale multi-organization complex projects through to relatively simple local ones. Barbara Allan has fully revised and updated her classic 2004 title Project Management to incorporate developments during the past decade, including: the development and wide-scale acceptance of formal project management methodologies; the use of social media to communicate and disseminate information about projects plus crowdfunding and crowdsourcing; and the large shift in the types of project library and information workers may be involved in. The text is supported by practical case studies drawn from a wide range of library and information services at local, rational, national and international levels. These examples provide an insight into the realities of project work, from an individual practitioner working in a voluntary organization on an extremely limited budget, to someone involved in an international project. Content covered includes: an introduction to project management, project workers and the library and information profession; different approaches to project management, the project cycle, the people side of projects and management of change; discussion of project methodologies, project management software, open source software, collaborative working software and use of social media; project initiation, communication, analysis and project briefs; developing project infra-structure, scheduling, working out the finances and carrying out a detailed risk analysis; working in partnerships, in diverse and virtual teams, and managing change. If you are a library and information professional involved in project work, e.g. as a leader, manager or team worker, then you will find this an invaluable resource. In addition, students of library and information studies, and others will find this book useful in their academic, research and professional work. --
