Overview

  • Do you barely have time for projects let alone project management?
  • Does your project team consist of just you?
  • Do you struggle to write project reports?
  • Could you complete your project in less than a month, if you had the time?
  • Are you intimidated by how complicated project management seems to be?

 
If you answered ‘YES’ to at least one of these questions then One-Page Project Management for Librarians is for you.
