The Northwestern University Libraries has announced “Sustaining Digital Resources, the Business Model Bootcamp” this summer in Evanston, Illinois between August 8-10, 2016 for Digital Project Leaders.
This intensive workshop, which past participants have described as a “mini-MBA where the topic is your project,” takes participants through the steps to developing a strong business case for their initiative. Sessions focus on identifying goals, defining the value of the project in light of its intended audience, understanding the motivations of your intended audience, exploring the external environment in which the project operates, developing a budget, and identifying the most likely funding sources.
Applications are due on June 30, 2016 and can be completed here.
