I Have an I.D.E.A.: Low Barrier Project Management for Effective Resource Allocation
MetadataShow full item record
Choices must be made when deciding what projects to take on and which ones need to be deferred. In a world where libraries need to do less with more, these choices can be very difficult. This presentation will describe an "I.D.E.A. document" that asks potential project managers to: (I)dentify; (D)efine; (E)xpand; and (A)uthorize the basic premise of their idea. This one to two-page document helps decision makers understand where resources would be allocated and makes transparent the work throughout the organization. The I.D.E.A. document is based within formal project management and contains essential elements such as scope, budget, stakeholders, and risks through a value-added process that minimizes red tape.
