Portfolio Project: Week 3 Outlook
What is the Portfolio Project?
For the Apprenticeship program I am doing (Praxis), the month of December is dedicated to a portfolio project of our choosing. The project is a way for us to grow in our chosen role by doing a dynamic project that will showcase our skills and what we have learned. I have chosen to do an operations centric project with a local non-profit business called Westside Cares. My project will be two or more proposals on how to improve the tracking of in kind donations.
It's week three! Biggest issue right now: time. I believe my first proposal would work, but considering the amount of time it would take to use, it is just not realistic.
Week Three Outlook
CEO out of town
Going to create the tally system and hope for the best
Create outline of my next proposal
Tally System First Draft
Learned Google Forms
Took about 45 minutes
Simple but time consuming
Email to Westside Cares Worker
Reflection on Tally System Right Now
I solved the paper work issue
Haven't yet solved time issue
(I misspoke in the video. I sent the proposal to Deb, not Kristy, see email above)
Today I am going to dive further into my Trello learning while I wait for a response to the email. The response will dictate how I delegate my time this week.
In the case that I don't get a response within 24 hours, I will put some time into tweaking my original proposal, but since I'm not happy with the concept, I will spend most of my energy in coming up with a new one.
