As positions shift, and responsibilities change, many visual resources professionals find themselves working and/or leading project-based teams. VR professionals are now working in environments that ask them to manage multiple user-centric projects at once with multiple stakeholders, different timelines, and diverse teams. Taking on this work is rewarding and can expand your role, increasing your value to your institution. But, it can be a new, tricky, and occasionally frustrating, way of working.    This workshop will provide a basic overview of the fundamentals of project management. Presentations and discussions will cover stakeholder-focused project planning, task planning, project management buzzwords, strategies for effective communication with diverse teams and users, and project and stakeholder assessment. Group work will highlight examples specific to libraries, archives and museums of different sizes and scope. Workshop facilitators will provide project planning templates, productivity tips and tricks, and other helpful resources. Come learn strategies for project success!    If you want to learn more about how to utilize brainstorming and design thinking in areas beyond project management, register for "What is, What if, What Wows, and What Works: Design Thinking for Problem Solving, Innovation, and Leadership” workshop.
