Technology is blossoming in Libraries, Archives and Museums and with it
emerges a new workforce with a decidedly more collaborative approach to
getting work done. On the way out are the top-down, command-and-control,
and delegation-oriented administrations and on the rise are new management
practices, such as the Agile management principles, which portend to be a
better fit for the modern library operations portfolio – and, most
importantly, for the critical mass of people and projects working in
support of a technologically-evolved mission. This course will examine how
new management practices arising out of the software development and
technology sector are being adopted in cultural heritage organization such
as Libraries, Archives, and Museums.

Whether it’s understanding the community contribution and technologic
governance models of open source projects or how incremental improvement
keeps customers happy this course will identify, name, and observe emerging
practices that are influencing library operations. After completing this
course you will be an informed agent poised to take strategic actions in
your organization (such as immediate workflow improvements, new quality
control measures, or even identifying further coursework and certification
programs) in order to fully realize recognized benefits of agile practices:
improved quality, morale, efficiency and teamwork. This course is
introductory and its aim is to equip students with the vocabulary and
context necessary to pursue further education.

Course Schedule:

Week 1: Read about contributions to the agile philosophy from founders and
influential thinkers such as Shewhart (Bell Labs), Deming (Toyota),
Takeuchi, Nonaka, Sutherland (Easel), Schwaber, and more
Week 2: Identify distinguishing characteristics of new management practices
such as Agile, Scrum, eXtreme Programming (XP), Kanban, Systems Thinking,
as well as Waterfall and SDLC in order to make informed recommendations for
adoption
Week 3: Read from library, museum and archives’ literature including the
code4lib Journal, Library Management, the International Journal of Digital
Curation and influential blogs, among others, to better contextualize the
organizational nuances of library adoption
Week 4: Finalize your organizational preparedness narrative and create an
adoption and implementation recommendation

By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Explain the basic process and ideas of Scrum, one of the Agile management
frameworks
- Hold an informed conversation with colleagues, managers and
administrators regarding the benefits, similarities and differences
emerging management practices such as Agile
- Assess your organizational preparedness including extant synergies with
Agile principles; learn directly from the L/A/M literature including
reports, case studies and research
- Create a plan for adaptation, adoption and/or implementation from simple
workflow improvements to full utilization of Scrum
