Meeting today: Project Management Interest Group
The UCOP Project Management Interest Group is pleased to present “The New UC Information Center — An example of a well-managed project.” Ola Popoola will share her experience as project manager on the UC Information Center and then answer questions from the group.
About the UC Information Center project
The vision for the UC Information Center is to enable the UC community and the public to gain valuable insights into the university using data visualizations by providing quick, clear and easy access to information. Data visualizations allow the presentation of large amounts of data without overwhelming the viewer. The site is made up of three main areas: Storyboards focus on data-driven narratives that weave multiple data visualizations into a storyline; dashboards provide answers to frequently asked questions; and data tables present static and interactive reports that provide download access to raw data.
