Park and recreation professionals are often asked to play the role of Project Manager, even though formal training on project management is usually never given. Even when excitement about the project is high, balancing these new responsibilities with an already full plate is tough, and it’s easy for a project and its team to veer off track. This presentation will cover the roles of the project manager, as well as the roles of project team members that need to be filled and communicated. It will include information on necessary pre-project preparations, including participation plans, project timelines, and risk identification. It will also provide details about how to manage people within a project team, including communication plans and team development tips.
