Unveiling Project SPUD
Project SPUD is our code name. We are going to host a booth at the Wapping Fair on the weekend of Sept 10 - 13, 2009 and sell baked potatoes with toppings.
It seems simple, right? Well, we already have 4 pages of plans, including trying to estimate quantities of orders and rate of sale.
This is a fun community project and I am looking forward to working with the fine folks at Wapping Community College over the next 6 weeks.
It is a great way to give back, see project management in action for volunteer efforts and expose regular folk to the benefits of applying project management discipline.
Watch this space for more to come on Project SPUD.
(Believe me, we will use the fewest spreadsheets imaginable, and a very simple project dashboard. I will die a happy man if I never see a Green, Red or Yellow spreadsheet in my life again).
