Building Your Team with the Right People from the Get-go

Wednesday, October 9, 2019,12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This session is part of Information in Action: Getting Buy-in for Your Knowledge Project brought to you by NSHA Library Services, the Maritime SPOR SUPPORT Unit (MSSU), and Dalhousie Libraries.

At our organizations we create many types of knowledge products (policies, patient education, practice guidelines, subject guides, and more). None of these products are created in isolation. We’ll discuss how to identify colleagues and contacts at the start of your project who have the expertise you need. Get tips on recruiting the right people to fill a specific role(s) on your team. This session will help you successfully launch and complete your collaborative project and give you the foundation to grow your professional network.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the appropriate type of knowledge product for your target audience/need
  • Identify the expertise needed for a specific project
  • Understand the value added by engaging colleagues with the right expertise
  • Establish clear expectations around the role of each collaborator
