Reflection week 7

Rehearsal Presentation & Production aka the Final Countdown (week 7)

What we have done this week what’s the progress of the process?

This is the week where we basically need to wrap up everything we’ve been doing till now and put this ‘everything’ in an easily digestible video to advise the Stahili Foundation.

Even if we as a group needed to tackle some challenges in our decision making-process we are still enthusiastic about the end result and the effect we might achieve.  Enthusiastic in that sense we hope to give “our” NGO useful advice that will help to boost the effectiveness and efficiency of the work they’re doing.

With this enthusiastic mood we going into this team adventure of filming a short and informative video for advising the stahili foundation. For this Video we have already prepared the storyboard and we have had a feedback session, where we recognized that we first need to create valuable content (for the NGO) to later be able to visualize it in an catchy, understandable and useful manner. Valuable – what’s that? What we are meaning? Meaning; we recognized we need to improve our WHAT, HOW, WHY  to better make sense of our findings. Hence be able to not only inform the Stahili foundation but also encourage action.

As we worked in a collaborative group with InterHague and considering that we more or less experienced steadily changing sub-groups, we also divided the task for filming the video between all members (of two groups). Just to name it once we split up in Script Writers, Film-Crew, Editing People.

Preparation for the video includes when and where to film the video. Further the materials and devices we are going to need on the spot. Besides patience somebody might bring the storyboard that we actually know what we are doing.

The VIDEO includes the main issues the foundation faces, what we researched during the last weeks and the effects we actually trying to achieve.

The content of the Video in short:

What? Volunteers

why -> be more effective, sustain and expand the impact that they have right now

more donations through efficient work

how -> recruit, manage, support

utilize differents tools and methods to achieve those objectives

What? Fundraising

why? -> build and maintain a better/closer relationship with donors

how? -> showing/visualizing the donors how they contributed to help the children supported

by Stahili

What? Publicity and Communication

why?  -> (enlarge, engage, involve network/community) to have greater impact and secure

future for the children they support at the moment

how?  -> Social Media Schedule, revised brochures, improved style of approach

Cheers

Enjoy the autumn break!

Impression week 2

Task analysis:

In the last week we have already set our roles, so everybody knows about their tasks.
Sandra, our Team Leader has explained the challenges and the main objectives that we aim to achieve this week. Me, the technical steward has set up our wordpress online blog and everybody has wrote his first introducing post. Our Client Service, Emilio, has a first meeting, by telephone, with our contact person of the Stahili Foundation. A reflection of this Interview will be uploaded, too. At this point he could figure out useful information’s, opportunities and possibilities for our project. During the whole project work, our documentarian, Mate, made photos and (written-) notes. The production manager, Abel, has researched different information about other NGO´s which will give us insight on different types of working with this theme. There is also already a cloud-storage, so we can communicate and exchange files.

We have found out, that meeting every Tuesday afternoon, is a good decision, because we are already meeting Mondays in school and the deadline for every weeks assignments is on Wednesday. So if we meet Tuesdays, we can discuss and spread our tasks fair. Afterwards we’ll work on them at home. When we are meeting on the next day again, we’ll just conclude and talk about our tasks, finish the reflecting post and finally load everything up.

Reflecting the last week, we have learned about our sweet spot. It was lots of fun, because we created a sweet spot model of our community, with our team’s strengths. Therefor we looked on our passions, gifts and purposes. This is our Sweet Spot:

(click to maximize)

We also talked about our vision of an ideal project group. Thereby were some differences visible. First of all we talked about the group size. For us the ideal group size should be between 3 and 8 people. Also we were unanimous that there has to be different roles in the group. We agreed to the roles:
-executive people, translating ideas into reality (constructors, logical way of thinking)

-creative folks

-managers, good communicators

Our first short term goal is to get more attention to people for a crowdfunding event organized by our NGO. It’s on the 30th September right here in The Hague!
We’re really looking forward to the event
