Uniprint Maintenance
Public printing in the UMN Libraries will be unavailable beginning Thursday, January 3, 2012 at 3:00 pm for server maintenance.  The Office of Information Technology (OIT) hopes to have printing back up and running Friday morning, January 4, 2013 at 6:00 am.  Printing will also be intermittently unavailable during the weekend of January 5 and 6, 2013, due to the annual maintenance scheduled for the UMN Data Center.  For questions, please contact Amy Boemer at (612)624-2050.

Projects need a wide spectrum of conditions to be successful.  This webinar will address the full gamut of project prerequisites necessary to support project success and will provide examples of these conditions for different project types.  You will:
- see examples of needs by project type.
- learn how to ensure all elements for project success are in place and understand what might happen if they are not.
- discover how to develop and implement a checklist for assessing your project inputs and conditions.

Instructor Mark Waldof is a project management expert with over forty years of industry experience.  He is currently employed by a Fortune 50 company specializing in project management process development, training development, and project management assessment activities.  Mark also provides project management and systems engineering consulting services to a variety of U.S. and state government organizations.  The webinar is hosted by the College of Continuing Education.
