runs on projects.
Destination Imagination Challenges
can easily be described as “projects.” DI is working with the PMIEF to give
participating DI teams the tools and skills that will help them solve their
Team Challenge for the 2015-16 program season and also help them handle any
school or future work project. These tools will also help DI Team Managers run
efficient team meetings and keep their teams on track.
Roadmap leads teams and Team
Managers through the DI Program while overlaying both the creative process, and
now, PMIEF tools. In Roadmap, DI and PMIEF have created and published age-appropriate
project management language to describe the steps of the Project Management
(PM) process. Each step of the PM process has been aligned with how teams
develop and produce their Team Challenge solutions.
Specifically, Roadmap incorporates a
series of tools and resources that will help teams accomplish a number of goals
along their journey through the creative process. Some of the tools include
defining the Team Challenge project plan so that the team has a clear timeline
and division of tasks among team members; developing measurable milestones to
keep the team on track; and managing the limited time and resources that are
available to the team when solving its Challenge.
Students for the 21st Century Workforce
According to a recent publication by
the Project Management Institute, 1.57 million new project management jobs will
be created every year around the world through 2020. Professionals and
job-seekers with project management skills are in a prime position to benefit.
By preparing DI participants to become project managers early in life, they
will be more easily positioned to take on these emerging job opportunities.
