Project Management Workshop for ESC 2013 volunteers
Project Management Workshop for ESC 2013 volunteers

On Saturday, 25 May 2013 over 20 volunteers who are involved in the English Summer Camp took part in the Project Management Workshop delivered by Malgorzata Kusyk, the president of Gdansk branch of PMI.

In the first part of the workshop the participants were introduced to the agile approach of a project management.

The second part of the session was more practical. The participants were divided into 5 groups:

  • Program (English course/ additional activities)
  • Events
  • Communication, Promotion & Media Relations
  • Fundraising
  • Logistics

Each group prepared a list of tasks that have to be performed within the project. For example, the Fundraising group was planning how to collect funds or find sponsors. Then the participants estimated the priority and duration of each activity.
