Project Managment Example – Product Naming

As part of my studies at UIndy, I completed a project management course. Dr. Knapp, who built the Project Management Office up at Raytheon, asked that the class focus on a real life problem at our place of business. The problem that I wished to focus on was on the product portfolio of the parks department.  While we offered many products at facilities that were similar, most of them were called different names from location to location. This proved difficult to develop an interface for customers to find the programs. The following documents are examples of the project management documents, policy manual, and a link to the FunFinder search.

Providence Cristo Rey School | Dontation Analysis

Providence Cristo Rey School is a private school in Indianapolis focused on making their students successful for life by working with companies throughout the region and immersing their students in the business world one day a week. For my Not For Profit Marketing Course, I provided a detailed analysis of the school’s donors under $10k/annum in an effort to assist PCR’s donor relations staff in understanding how to increase funding. I was also able to work with the staff on understanding how pivot charts / tables can assist in continuing benchmarking. The following is the final analysis as a PowerPoint as presented to the administrators at PCR.
