Oregon Women in Higher Education: Project Management Toolkit for Leading Successful Projects
Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 2:00pm to Wednesday, January 15, 2020 - 3:20pm

Have you ever been tasked with implementing a new process or technology, or spearheading an initiative within your department? Although you may not consider the work you do a “project”, using project management (PM) techniques can result in higher success rates and is a great opportunity to build your leadership skills.

In this session, we will discuss

  • Project management techniques (e.g. Agile, Waterfall, Scrum)
  • How to manage projects and teams with professionalism and empathy
  • How to hold productive meetings, with clear and open communications
  • How to adapt project management tools and templates to your needs

Facilitiated by colleagues from the Office of Information Technology: Karenna Sills, Francesca Leaf, and Nicole Erickson.
