Published:   November 2009

Annotation:  

This project management methodology will assist networks in delivery of literacy projects. The methodology is a simplified toolkit that takes tried and true project management theory and summarizes it in a step-by-step guide to delivering a project in the literacy sector in Ontario. By applying a formal methodology, project managers can help to ensure that their projects are truly successful and avoid or at least minimize the number of headaches that are often associated with projects. This methodology will benefit not only those with limited project management knowledge or experience, but also those who have delivered their share of projects. It will provide an overview and detailed steps successfully managing a project, and provide helpful tips that can turn a good project manager into a great one.
