Project Management provides valuable instruction in planning, managing and completing projects of all types. In this workshop, you will learn how to implement internationally recognized project management principles in a history context. Instruction will cover all of the details in the four steps to successful project management:

  1. Define (creating a project charter, setting initial objectives, identifying risks and constraints, and more)
  2. Plan (developing a schedule, budget, etc.)
  3. Manage (providing feedback, negotiating for resources and resolving differences)
  4. Review (turning over deliverables, documentation and more)

Using real project ideas, participants apply project management principles to create a project charter and scope diagram that help them return home equipped to begin or continue their project in an efficient, orderly and open manner.

Who Should Take Part in this Workshop:

Project Management is valuable training for staff at all levels. And, whether your work involves exhibitions, education and programs, planning, fundraising, collections, historic preservation or the many other tasks staff at history organizations address every day, you will leave this workshop with new skills, ideas and tools for successfully completing projects.

Cost: $475 AASLH Members/ $550 Nonmembers. 

Project management is usually discussed in terms of software development or construction management. It was so helpful to see its value within a humanities context. This is some of the best professional development I have ever experienced. Excellent instruction. –2015 workshop participant

The workshop is taught by Steven Hoskins, Ph.D., author of AASLH’s Technical Leaflet (#260) “Calculating Risk: A Guide to Project Management for History Professionals.”
