W04 – Agile-Inspired Project Management for Library Staff (Or Simple and Practical Methods to Keep Calm and Get Stuff Done)

At ER&L 2016, the instructor presented how she used elements of Scrum to manage a collections assessment project. Because of the great benefits she experienced using Scrum, she continues to use Agile methods for large and small projects to effectively juggle competing priorities and meet tight deadlines. Based on attendee feedback, this workshop provides an opportunity for 2017 ER&L attendees to learn more about Scrum and other Agile Movement tools. Commonly used in software development, Agile methods like Scrum and Kanban are simple, practical, and flexible project management methods. This workshop will introduce attendees to Scrum and Kanban through a balance of theory, demonstration, and hands-on application. During this workshop, the instructor will briefly demonstrate how she used elements of Scrum to develop a framework for a comprehensive review of e-resource collections. Attendees will then begin applying Scrum by working in small groups to develop the Scrum elements of “stories” and “tasks” for their own projects.

Next, the instructor will describe Kanban and demonstrate how she uses Kanban in her current position. Attendees will then explore analog and digital iterations of Kanban and create their own Kanban board.

During the demonstrations of Scrum and Kanban, the instructor will illustrate the flexibility of each method and describe how she modified the methods as needed for her work. She will illustrate how using these methods helped not only with getting tasks done, but also helped strengthen project deliverables, increase team morale, and resulted in equitable task distribution among team members.
