Agile in the Library: Principles and Tools for Managing Teams and Strengthening Change
Monday, November 7
Monday, November 7 – Saturday, December 3, 2022 | Four-week online course.
Agile, a framework for project management, has been described as “easy to use, difficult to master.” This course is offered as an introduction or refresher for library teams interested in improving their work processes and communication.
We will begin by exploring the history and foundational principles that inspired Agile, and then move beyond these core ideas to learn and apply the tools that support teamwork and continuous process improvement, including scrum, kanban, stand-ups, and retrospectives. We will explore the roles that support Agile and scrum, and look at some of the common pitfalls that teams experience as they experiment with these methodologies. This course is especially unique for its focus on Agile in library environments, guest speakers and examples as to how Agile has been used to improve day-to-day operations, guide projects, and successfully navigate change and uncertainty.
