School of Business students in the Project Management course (BUS250) this summer quarter were challenged to build a bridge out of newspaper. What they didn’t realize is that they were practicing some of the basic elements used when managing a project.
学习项目管理课程(Project Management)(BUS250)的商学院学生今年夏季学期进行了一项用报纸建造桥梁的活动。他们没有意识到的是,他们在建造过程中应用到了管理项目所需的一些基本技巧。

Grouped into four teams of two people, each team was asked to build half the structure in order to connect with another team’s structure to complete a full model of the bridge. Using limited resources including five sheets of newspaper, tape, scissors, measuring tape and only an hour to build, the assignment appeared impossible. The structure needed to be free standing, have a height of at least three inches from the base, and include the maximum span length and strength possible given the limited resources.
学生被分成4组,每组2人,每一组负责建一半的桥梁结构,然后和另外一组的结构组成一个完整的桥梁模型。使用有限的资源:5张报纸、胶带、剪刀、卷尺,利用仅有的1小时时间建一座桥梁,这样的任务看似不太可能。模型必须能直立起来,高度从底部算起至少3英寸,并利用有限资源使桥梁的长度最长、强度最强。

Although there were some determined and puzzled expressions during construction, project management skills such as defining, planning and communicating were applied in every group. Since each person envisioned different models, each group struggled to incorporate ideas and put together a complete gap analysis to create a paper bridge. The majority of students found team communication, planning and delegating skills to be most challenging. When the time allotted expired, the bridges were put to the test with span length measured and strength evaluated using Hershey kisses. Each bridge had very different features and success in meeting the requirements. Overall, students enjoyed the class project and felt better prepared to attack the challenge of project management. We are looking forward to a rematch armed with project management skills and are ready to build a better bridge!
尽管在建造过程中会遇到一些确定和不确定的事情,每一组都可以应用一些项目管理技巧,例如规定、策划和交流。由于每一个人设想的模型不同,所以每一组都需要交流自己的设想,并总和成一个完整的差距分析,建造一个纸桥。大多数学生认为团队交流、策划和代表技巧比较困难。当时间到,桥梁会被进行长度测量,并放上好时巧克力评估桥梁的强度。每一座桥梁在满足条件的情况下都有不同的特点和成功之处。总之,学生非常享受这一课堂项目,也感觉自己准备好迎接项目管理的挑战了。我们期待着再次进行这样的比赛,我们已经准备好应用项目管理的技巧建造一座更好的桥梁!
