Description

The Digital Project Management workshop will provide a toolkit for initiating a digital project in cultural organizations ensuring that you know the right questions to ask in order to get the answers you need. These approaches will be applicable to large or small-scale website development, multimedia and mobile projects.

The workshop will provide practical advice on how best to initiate a digital project in order to give you a solid foundation to delivery and how to decide on the right approach and methodology for successful delivery and sustainability at your institution. The workshop will be led by project managers who are hugely experienced in digital project delivery and actively lead on new digital initiatives in their institutions.

By the end of this workshop you will be armed with a guide to all the key questions you should be asking, some strategies to deal with common issues that will arise, and confidence in your ability to get your project off to a great start.

Participants that would benefit from this workshop include: those who are new to managing a digital project, or are in organizations that do not have the backing of large digital teams. We would like participants to come to the workshop with projects they are about to start or are currently working on so that we can troubleshoot some of the problems together and provide some really useful practical help and support.

Topics to be covered include:

  • How to get a digital media project off the ground and get buy-in from your institution.
  • Show workflow process from conception to launch.
  • Setting priorities, assigning roles and responsibilities.
  • How to be agile in the non-agile world of our institutions.
  • Planning for post-launch to keep your project sustainable and relevant.
  • How to be a museum limited on resources but one that is resourceful.
