Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:
- What worked well?
- Planning went well
- project execution went well
- What did not work so well?
- securing a suitable location was very difficult. we planned on using a hall outside the school but could no longer afford it due to increase in price. We had to finally use a lecture theatre inside the Campus but with a price (because it was meant to be a lecture venue at specified time and date)
- the turnout was more than we planned for so we had to make late provisions at more expensive prices for refreshment
- What would you do differently next time?
- plan for far more people than anticipated
