Why Choose this Training Course?
Project management is used to optimize the utilization of resources to achieve set goals, within the planned schedule and allocated budget. The digitalization or digitization allows for the projects to reduce the time spent on meetings, reduces costs and enables transparency, cooperation and ease of communication. However, it comes with risks, as managing digital projects involves managing various digital technologies to achieve high-quality deliverables, and these deliverables might not always be tangible, and depend a lot on the user acceptance.
The vast majority of project management failures we see can be traced back to requirements management, scope creep, change request handling, adoption failures, or sustained maintenance—all activities that are in the realm of project management, and when it comes to digitization, all of them are existent as the understanding of the workload needed for responding to change requests is not always fully understood.
The emergence of digital libraries provides an unprecedented opportunity for broader and easier access to an information resources, while at the same time providing additional protection, easier preservation and copyright protection. There are as many approaches to the development of digital libraries as there are definitions of what constitutes digital library. Digital libraries are permanently evolving with the introduction of new formats, standards, technologies, best practices, digital library design, evaluation, preservation, and digital curation and this course is intended to provide adequate guidance to the professionals involved in these projects on how to achieve their goals without frustration and budget and timeline overruns.
