lease follow the assigned steps below and review the included grading rubric which will be the basis for your grade.
- Watch/review the “THE Project Vision Video” offered by this Project Management Institute: http://wmpmi.org/content.php?page=THE_project_2012_Video
- Please confirm you are watching the correct video. If the assignment doesn't make sense to you, it may be that your browser is redirecting you to the wrong video. The title at the top should say -THE Project Video "Vision". The video frame shows a man in a red tie. About 15 seconds into the video, the first speaker is Kelly Talsma, PMP.
- If you would like additional details on “The Project”, the “2012 Summary Video” is excellent as well. It is found at the same link as above. (4:43)
- Read/review the Defining Citizenship and Civic Engagement piece at: http://www.tnstate.edu/servicelearning/documents/Defining%20Citizenship%20and%20Civic%20Responsibility.pdf
- Consider how the definitions from this article apply in "The Project" competition.
Create an appropriate subheading for each of the four questions. Then provide your answer (for each question) that fully examines, assesses, or compares the required information. To earn full credit, answers must address the requirements from the rubric. (See attached PDF file) The paper must be 3-5 pages (900-1500 words) total length. In addition, a cover page and reference page and APA format is requried.
- Based on what you learned from watching the video and reading the “Defining Citizenship and Civic Engagement” piece, examine/explain how “The Project” competition brought together a professional organization, colleges, and business leaders to positively impact the project management field and the community.
- Assess the impact of the competition. Did this event fill a community need? If you believe it did fill a need, whose need(s) did it fill?
- Compare and contrast this event to one other college level student competition. (Research other collegiate academic competitions.) Provide specific things that differentiate the two competitions. Did the competition you chose contribute more or less to the community?
- As you saw in the video, there are corporate professionals who volunteered to act as mentors to The Project student teams. Illustrate lessons learned these mentors and/or the faculty sponsors may have taken away from this event and how they may employ what they learned back at their place of business.
