Overall, the project was a great chance to solidify all the skills I have acquired during my time at MIIS. By being embedded in an organization and applying these tools and prior knowledge to a real project, which inherently cultivated skills we could never get in a classroom. Through having the specific task of evaluating project management software and utilizing the 2017 work plan to test the effectiveness of these platforms, we gained a new sense of project management that will be useful in future client projects for our courses. Personally, I could gain a new sense of the environment I hope to work in and where I feel my talents could be more useful. Before doing the project, I knew I wanted to be involved in strategic planning and operations. After, I now know I want to continue to build the skill set to work in this capacity after graduate. I loved working on the work plan and specifying the resources needed, dependencies and how best to implement both tasks. The DPMI Client Project was a great opportunity to learn about an organization and apply tools learned in the classroom in the real world. I now have more of a sense of what tools I want to develop at MIIS to acquire the job I want to after graduation.
