Workshop 1 : Governance of Heritage Organisations : 22 April

Workshop 2 : Storage Management for Heritage Organisations : 23 April

Storage has been a constant area of crisis in many organisations for a long time, and this situation is not improving. Most organisations hold the bulk of their collections in storage, including physical storage and archival storage, and these areas require purposely management as part of the larger collection management framework of policies and procedures. This workshop will outline a range of strategies and processes to move towards best-practice storage management.

Workshop 3 : Project Management for Heritage Organisations : 24 April

The last of the three April workshops concerns project management and how best-practice project management methods can be used to improve the management and operations of heritage organisations.

This workshops is based upon the PRINCE2 (TM) method (PRINCE2 is a trade mark of the UK government). PRINCE2 is a general-purpose method for effective project management which applies to all sizes of projects, both large and small, and across all types of projects, including exhibition planning and retrospective documentation.
