Rockwell's Guide to Project Management in the Humanities

Note: this guide is in the early stages. Much of what is here is in outline form or missing. I am writing it as I prepare to teach Project Management.

Introduction to Project Management in the Digital Humanities

Starting Projects

  • Writing grant proposals and other ways of getting support.
  • Outline for a Project Proposal
  • Estimating Projects
  • Project Charters and those discussions you should have at the start

Running Projects

Wrapping Projects Up

  • Celebrating projects
  • Reporting and publishing projects after they are done
  • Burying projects so they don't haunt you
  • Depositing your data and texts

Common Methods and Practices

Project Management Tools

Managing Yourself and Others

  • About Meetings
  • What do you want to do with your life?
  • How do you know when you are stressed?
  • Types of digital humanities project roles
  • What does it mean to be a project manager?
  • Hiring People and Bringing Them On Board

Information for starting a business in Canada

Ten steps for starting a business by Michael Burden

Management Styles and Philosophies

What can go wrong (and how to learn from mistakes)

Examples of Projects and their Management

Useful Lists

As described in the The philosophy of this guide, much of the content is structured as lists you can dip into.

  • Why Lists explains my rationale for using lists and how you might use them.
  • The list of lists is an index to the list and a possible starting place.
