Project management hasn’t always been a well-known role in the ministry world, but we are beginning to see what a difference it can make in any kind of project. In this post for the Church Network, I give the reader eight ways project management can make a difference in their next project.
I came into the project management profession somewhat by accident. My boss asked me to handle a project and I found I enjoyed the process of collaborating with the team, monitoring tasks, solving problems, and more. I decided to make it official by earning the Project Management Professional certification through the Project Management Institute. As I started working with churches, I found that the same project management principles that worked in the corporate world could easily be adapted to help church leaders.
In this post for ChurchTechToday, I address the issue of bad church project management and offer tips to avoid that problem.
