Managing People and Projects [C8]


Getting and managing projects is an important part of the ICT environment in Higher and Further Education. Success is dependent upon finding and developing the right people and ensuring good interaction between project-based staff and permanent staff in the organisation.

After a short introduction, highlighting some of the key issues raised in the “Resolving the Human Issues in LIS projects” report, the session will discuss the “people side” of projects including:

  • Finding the right staff.
  • Supporting staff as they deliver projects.
  • Career development for project staff.
  • Integration of project-based and permanent staff.
  • What happens when the project ends.
