Information Strategies Curriculum: Critical thinking and project management skills for developing and implementing successful information-based projects
MetadataShow full item record
All too often, well-intentioned efforts aimed at effecting positive social change tend to leap immediately to particular information and technological solutions without a clear understanding of the context and problems they are trying to address. This lack of strategic development in information projects and the high risk of failure can be extremely costly and time-consuming for organizations with urgent needs and limited resources. The Information Strategies Curriculum was developed to address the challenges many societies face by preparing individuals to be information professionals and equipping them with the critical thinking and project management skills required for developing and implementing successful information-based projects. Originally developed for a group of fellows from Myanmar, the curriculum is designed to be flexible to allow for tailoring it with country-specific, context-relevant content.
