Our Methodology:

To understand our methods, you must first understand the field of Project Management. Many of you have heard that term and some even participated in the process at work and/or school. This is not a new process or methodology, on the contrary, Project Management has been around since the 1800's with its most aggressive applications to business beginning in the mid 1900's.

By definition, Project Management is the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives.

How does Project-College apply that 'discipline' to your needs?

First we treat your goals as Projects, and as in all Projects, this means successful planning is crucial! In that Initiating and Planning phases, we work closely with all Stakeholders (commonly yourself and your parents), to address such questions as your '7-Stages of Identification':

Stage 1:    Who am I?

Stage 2:    What do I want?

Stage 3:    How can I prepare?

Stage 4:    What's out here?

Stage 5:    What's right for me?

Stage 6:    How do I get it?

Stage 7:    I have it, now how do I keep it and succeed?

We take the framework of those questions and build them into a structured process that becomes the next phases, specifically 'Executing & Monitoring'. The results and recommendations come in the final phase, often referred to as 'Closing'

Again, understanding all of these phases or terminology is not important, knowing that we do and that we apply them with over 20 years of experience in the field… now that's important and that's what you hire when you hire Project-College.
