Align Deliverables with Strategic Business Objectives
I have spent my career in library and information technology on a range of technical implementations in research libraries.
Inform Stakeholders
Proactively communicated with the Orbis Cascade Alliance community on project progress through weekly Shared ILS updates and other communications (email updates, formal verbal presentations at in-person meetings).
Set Expectations
Presented in three kickoff meetings on project expectations during the Orbis Cascade Alliance's Shared ILS migration.
Obtain Resources
In the Orbis Cascade Alliance's migration to a Shared ILS, I obtained resources to meet project objectives (for example, reconstituting the consortium's training team during the migration work).
Identify Lessons Learned
Documented lessons learned through the Clackamas Community College migration to Alma/Primo in 2017 and shared the lessons with the primary vendor (Ex Libris) and with Orbis Cascade Alliance managers.
Accept Project Results
Supported the closeout of three Alliance cohorts, creating a punch list of issues for each cohort; Agreement with the vendor on lists’ issues resolution plus bringing the institutions into production use of the Shared ILS led to acceptance of delivery.
