Hunks, Chunks, and Bites (Or How to Eat an Elephant): Managing Your Small and Large Projects
Do you have 1 or 10 or 100 projects that are unfinished – and you REALLY wish they were complete? Are there days when you intend to get started on – or make progress on – your projects, but somehow the day gets away? This webinar will offer structures and strategies for conceptualizing and completing your projects.
If you apply what you learn in this class, you will
- Get clear on what your projects are;
- Be able to ask for (and receive) help, assistance, and support on your projects; and
- Finish your projects…even those that have been ‘lingering’ for weeks, months, or years.
Tell the truth. You have many, many projects. Just think about defining a project as:
- “A non-routine series of tasks directed toward a goal.” (Snead & Wycoff, 1997)
- “A project is anything that takes two or more steps to complete.” (David Allen)
“Hunks, Chunks, and Bites: Managing Your Small and Large Projects” is for academics who have projects that they want to complete and are frustrated by not getting them completed—and who may not be sure why they aren’t getting them completed (or even started!)
