I work for a non- profit organization that is just starting to write an RFP for their membership database and redesign of their Web site. Because of limited resources, I have been assigned to manage this project and, needless to say, it's a stretch. What can I do to start me in the right direction?
Sid Adelman’s Answer:
Douglas Hackney’s Answer: I’m assuming funds are limited and resources are non-existent. If this is the case, then you might try approaching a local university and seeing if a graduate student or two is interested in working with you. Your project could form the basis of their research or thesis.
Clay Rehm’s Answer: I would recommend project management training. Even if it is a one- or two-day session, there is much to be gained from such a session. I would recommend you visit the PMI Web site (www.pmi.org) for more information. Also, Sid Adelman and Larissa Moss have written a book on the subject, which is very good. Sid also teaches a one-day class that is very good.
Characteristics of a good project manager include big picture thinking, planning ahead, great organization skills and the ability to get along with anybody!
