Develop a workflow and procedures

Once you have chosen the organization, identified a collection, are familiar with the organization’s practices, and settled on the workshop’s final goals you can begin determining a likely workflow for the day-of the workshop. Workflows will vary based on the media types and formats being focused on, as well as space availability.

Defining the tasks that will be performed is key to all the preparation that follows. For example:

Workflows will be finalized when you are onsite preparing for the workshop. Sometimes it is possible to meet the day before and settle on the workflow, and other times you will only have the 1-2 hours of preparation before participants arrive to finalize the workflow. Keep workflows simple and focused on agreed upon workshop outcomes.
