This presentation by Kristine Sunda was part of a NISO 2019 training series entitled Project Management for the Information Community. Sunda offered this as the abstract of her talk:
The project is now in motion and the most challenging part is the execution. You can now use all the planning work to help manage it, including comparing the real to the ideal of your plan, and the ability to make changes as required. How do you support your team members when there are bumps in the road, or circumstances shift? We’ll review managing communications with the team and with stakeholders on an ongoing basis, followed by effectively closing a project.
Participants in this training session enjoyed an extended conversation between Sunda and course moderator, Maureen Adamson.
