As the Library's Lead Project Manager, I am responsible for project management leadership and consult with library colleagues on the planning, implementation, team formation, communication, and assessment of library-wide change initiatives, projects, and teams. I work with colleagues to identify project resources, dependencies and barriers, and facilitate shifts in approach in response to situational, environmental, or organizational changes.
I steward the portfolio of work related to the Library’s Strategic Framework and collaborate with library colleagues to develop systems, processes, policies, and tools that ensure activities are aligned with the library’s mission, values, and strategic objectives.
In order to foster healthy project management practices and methodologies in the library, I provide guidance to the library community by creating and curating resources, tools, and training opportunities, in areas such as strategic planning, systems thinking, change management, organizational development, inclusive meeting facilitation and self-care. I facilitate project management workshops across the U-M campus, as well as serving as a faculty member for DeEtta Jones and Associates.
