Think about camp a year from now... Is it organized? Is it systemized? Is it neither of those and you're laughing those were even suggested? Well then do we have a treat for you!

Joining EmJ on the pod is Allison Krabill, Google Project Management Certified, and Paige Moffett, Masters in Project Management here to talk about ... project management! For some (read: EmJ) the idea of project management at camp seems overwhelming. Where do you even begin? This is hypothetical but its recommended to listen to the podcast as the first step. Learn from Paige and Allison practical tools and starting points to get yourself and camp into a more organized and well oiled system. 

If you're looking for ways to incorporate structure into your projects in and out of the summer season, this is the pod for you. 

Producer EmJ's Takeaways:

  1. Paige shares a "fun" math game and I will give her credit, the idea of +1 -1 = is cool. Getting staff to be more bought in on learning and growing others. 
  2. You may have to manage people as much as you're managing the process. 
  3. It all comes down to good systems.
