My goals for this course is to complete all modules and assignments as well as learn as much as I possibly can so that I can apply it to my business, from my college days I learnt that "team work makes the dream work" and that it makes completing task a lot better. Currently the only experience I have in Project Management is from assignment and course work that was given to me during college.

Originally, I am a Computer Science graduate, but over the course of the last 6 years, I have been getting more and more into M&E and have done a 1 year conversion course in Economics and have applied for a Masters in Economics (though not sure if to major in Development Economics or Health Economics - I wish I could do both!).

  • @Raphael01 message each of them directly. initial a conversstion and suggest a meeting time and place(Whatsapp, google, etc) for every member of the team. send a reminder to them before the time. and wait and see.

    But first ask if there is a meeting point or a team leader. if not you can assume this position and practice your leadership skill.

    let me know if this works..

  • Hi All,

    My name is Rachel and I am joining from San Francisco, California in the United States. I am the Associate Director of insights at Worldreader, a global reading organization. My goals for this training are to refresh my project management skills and see if there are any tools I can use to improve project management at my organization. I am a team player, and love working in teams, but I have had some issues connecting with teams on the platform so I will need to go it solo this round. I do have a fair amount of project management experience from my past and current work both in the for and non-profit space. Currently most of my project management revolves around research projects for the organization and rolling out systems improvements.
