About Us - Leadership Projects - IT project management
And if all of this still isn't enough to give you an idea... then maybe you need to re-evaluate whether or not you should do such a leadership project.
UW LEND fellows present their leadership project at the Annual UW LEND Day typically held in early June. Leadership projects are presented as either a 10 minute oral presentation with PowerPoint slides or as a professional poster presentation. Ideas for Leadership Projects should be discussed with the faculty mentor no later than Winter Quarter.
The Community Leadership Project is a time-limited partnership among the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, The James Irvine Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Over the past six years, this project has strengthened small and mid-size community organizations serving low-income people and communities of color in the San Francisco Bay Area, Central Coast and San Joaquin Valley. Through collaborations with regional intermediary organizations, the three foundations have made general operating support grants, and supported leadership development and technical assistance, for hundreds of organizations since the project’s launch in 2009, with plans to continue through 2015.Now, as the project nears its final year, the three foundations are committing an additional $2 million in a final phase for one-year general support or capacity-building concluding grants. These grants will be made eligible to current Community Leadership Project grantees through the intermediaries. During the first phase of the project (2009–2012), underwritten with $10 million, 100 small and mid-size organizations received financial support, and 300 organizations and leaders developed skills through trainings and workshops. The found that community-based organizations participating in the Community Leadership Project were already becoming more financially stable, building leadership and becoming more resilient as a result of the initiative. During the second phase (2012–2015), the foundations honed their focus on organizational sustainability, dedicating $8 million toward the goal of helping 56 community organizations develop strong and resilient leadership, become more adaptive and grow more financially stable.Collectively, project leadership and project "managership" may be referred to as project "stewardship". To be a steward is to hold something in trust for another. Thus, project stewardship may be defined as a willingness to be accountable for the well-being of the project organization while placing service towards the goals of the project above self-interest. It entails holding accountability for your people without exacting harsh compliance from them. In the planning phases, "managership", as described, has its limitations. Leadership overcomes these limitations. In the producing phases, leadership per se also has its limitations, and good "managership" is required.Each year, the PEL administrative team identifies projects designed to address essential strategic questions facing the University. The group leadership project is designed to:Over-sight/management of the , on a particular asset at each stage in R&D is performed by a project leader. Rarely does a project leader manage the project through all stages of discovery and development. Figure 11, below, shows a minimal set of project leaders for Project A. Keeping on a project leader into the next stage requires familiarity with the nature of work and decision making, which varies dramatically at each stage. Familiarity with relevant line department leaders is useful. There will be a greater tendency to allow project leaders to stay on in smaller companies where such familiarity is possible. Professional project leaders, if given sufficiently empowered staff and authority, could in principle manage a project through all stages. Part-time volunteer project leaders lack the skill set to manage a project through all stages. Senior managers must ensure each project has an adequately trained and fully empowered project leader.
