Collection storage project success is determined by alignment with larger strategic goals. Those planned as collections growth, access and preservation projects succeed while those approached as a building project fail. The resources required for each are completely different and impact the project definition in early planning, the internal consensus required and the financial resources needed (for the project and future operations). This session will present an overview of what project criteria and information should be known at each phase (strategic planning to completion) to properly inform the early budgets (which will be remembered by the board). Learn how input from internal stakeholders changes from predesign (problem definition) to design (project solution). This link of goals, scope definition and resource allocation will support a smoother process and the outcomes envisioned during strategic planning.
