This Project Is a Bear... um, Lion... Er, Giraffe
As you may recall from last fall, my Drake Project Management MBA class usually gets more than they bargain for when they sign up. To make the concepts real (rather than just dwelling on academic theory), I team my students up with a local not-for-profit organization, and they get to develop a business case and project plan for projects of the organization's choosing. This year's not-for-profit? The Blank Park Zoo.
We met with a representative from the Zoo's management team yesterday, and the positive challenge has been set. I have an AWESOME group of students this semester (including two brave souls who have me as instructor for both of their classes). It's going to be a blast!
