Abstract

This article describes how the University of Arizona (UA) Libraries implemented a project management process to address the increasing need to be more efficient and effective in initiating and completing projects, and to manage the changing and complex nature of the Libraries' work. The Libraries identified the Brigham Young University (BYU) Project Planning and Management process as a method that would help the organization define, plan, execute, and complete its projects effectively and efficiently. An overview of the BYU project management method, as adapted and implemented by the UA Libraries, and a description of portfolio management, project management, product management, and roadmaps, are provided.
