Project Management for History Professionals
|June 15, 2014 - 5:00 pm||Deadline for early registration discount|
Project Management skills can be of great value to history professionals and the institutions they serve. Streamlining project processes, evaluation tools from beginning to the end of projects, and creative enhancement skills applicable throughout the institution will become a staple for those who take the workshop.
In addition, participants will gain a skill-set for self-improvement through project management methods.
The goal of the program is to improve how history museums operate by bringing in the expertise of professionals from outside our discipline to teach the fundamentals of project management to history professionals.
This workshop instructs history professionals in best practices for establishing project requirements and planning and organizing work to meet them.
The program teaches skills that strengthen the processes history professionals apply in their everyday work including exhibitions, education programs, fundraising initiatives, special events, outreach activities, collections-based projects, etc.
These skills are critical to the development of improved processes and, therefore, an institution’s improved ability to serve its community.
AASLH’s Project Management For History Professionals offers professionals at work in museums, historic houses, outdoor museums, historical societies, archives, and related institutions formal project management skills that will lead to better performance and success in the many and various projects and programs that are vital to the field.
