Project Outreach 2018

PMI Adelaide SA Chapter develops and delivers an Outreach Program titled:

“Project Management as a Life Skill”


PMI Adelaide Chapter is laying the foundations for the next generation of Project Managers.

The PMI Adelaide SA Chapter, with financial support from SA Water (winner of the 2013 PMI Global Project of the Year) have developed a Community Outreach program in line with PMI's Education Foundation vision, initially targeted at secondary schools. 

This program titled "Project Management as a Life Skill" has been successfully delivered to Pembroke School - Year 9 & 10 students in 2016.

The program consists of teaching project management fundamentals, the five phases, explaining the terminology, then applying it to an activity, with students reporting back to the class.

The workshop ran for 2 hours.  The first hour was explaining the Project Management phases using “Baking a cake” as the example and the second hour required the students to use the methodology to “Plan a trip.”  It was exciting to see as the students presented – their terminology matched project management rhetoric.

The most exciting part of this was the students using the methodology to plan their Charity projects. 

Since the Project commenced, Pembroke re – engaged the Chapter to present in 2017 and Blackwood High School came on board and received a similar workshop.  Blackwood High School rollout was specifically targeted at the students that will be doing their personal project during 2018.

We are always on the look out for engaging more schools to share our Project Management Skills, so if you have contacts in schools please feel free to contact the Chapter.

Also, we are always looking for volunteers to participate in the workshops.  If you would like to be involved, contact the Chapter and we will put you on our Project Outreach contacts list.
