RLF in Review: Project Management

This past week, Dartmouth alum, Karen Liot Hill '01 taught the Rockefeller Leadership Fellows about project management, which is the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to accomplish a predetermined objective. Karen first discussed project management theory and then had fellows apply the theoretical structure she provided them using GANTT charts as a way to plan their own unique projects. Hill also discussed the conceptual frameworks of project management, including “traditional” (5-step model: initiation, planning, execution, monitoring, and completion) and “critical path” (determining dependencies between tasks in order to identify longest/shortest possible routes to project completion).
