PMG Training & Project Management
What is a PMG and why do we need to use one? A PMG is the acronym for Project Management Guide. It is used in the Jaycee organization for a variety of purposes.
Used as a tool to help plan and implement a project or event. Used as a means to approve your plan by the chapter board and membership. Used as a means to appropriate funds from the chapter. Used as a reference for future project chairman.
The Three Stages of a Project Planning Implementation Evaluation
Planning Brainstorming and Preliminary Work. Develop Projected Budget, Timeline, Materials and Resources you will need and Potential Problems and Solutions. Handle all Logistical Duties during this Stage.
Implementation This is where you run the actual project or event, be it an afternoon, or several weeks (such as a Haunted House).
Evaluation Realize the goals you set out to do with your project. Be sure to send out thank you notes to supporting businesses and individuals. Prepare your final PMG for approval from your board and membership. Submit PR announcing your accomplishments and what you’ve done for the community. Submit any charitable donations that were raised.
How do I use a PMG? Preliminary PMG- PMG draft which includes planning process of questions 1-7. The objectives, goals, manpower, materials needed, proposed budget and timeline of planning are outlined. This will be presented to supervising chapter officer, board and membership for approval. Final PMG- Complete step 8-10 by noting any changes or recommendations for future chairpersons, evaluate goals, complete impact statements and final budget.

List committee members names Contact information and specific duties and responsibilities. For manpower assignments where a specific person(s) has not yet been selected, list the specific responsibilities, talents, skills, knowledge or abilities that person(s) will need to possess.

Question #5 4. What specific materials, supplies, and resources will be required?
Question #6 6. Complete a proposed budget indicating all anticipated income and expenses.
Keeping project goals in mind, refer to the list of materials, supplies, and resources, along with the proposed action steps, to determine estimated project income and expenses. Include the value of donated items (goods and services). List all anticipated income and expenses.
Income Money appropriated from chapter. List of donated items. Estimate the value. Cash sponsorships Cash Income – admission, raffle tickets, silent auction Each of these areas that has more than one item should be totaled. If there are no items then you would put generic titles like Product Sponsors along with $0.00.
Expenses Product Donations. Then have an itemized list of the expenses such as Food, Permits, Construction, Flyers Total Cash Expenses. Total these two areas in line called Project Expenses
Net Income Subtract Project Expenses from Income. This is the project’s profit/loss.
Where do the profits go? Required return to chapter Dues Subsidy, Liability Insurance Total this area with line called Total Required Return to Chapter. Earmarks Itemize Profit designed to be spent at a later date. Sometimes this is an estimate. Total this area with line called Total Earmarks Charitable Contributions- Itemize and total any money designated for charities in line called Total Charitable Contributions Return to Chapter- Any profit left over will be returned to chapter.
Simplifying the Budget Income: Appropriation from the chapter $A Value of Donated Items… $B Cash from items sold… $C TOTAL $D Expenses: Appropriation returned to the chapter.....$A Value of Donated Items $B Item bought for project $E Item bought for project $F Item bought for project $G Donation for cause or profit to chapter...$H TOTAL $D Total income & expenses MUST balance! No budget should be all zeros! Consider each Letter a different value. A = Appropriation from the chapter and is the same in both the income and expense. B = Value of donated items and is the same in both income and expense. C = The total amount of money brought in from sales. D = the total of all income and the total of all expenses. Both numbers should be the same. E, F, G = Arbitrary amount of purchases made to run the project ie: pens, signs, tickets, whatever.... H = Profit. Basically it should be the sum of the income (A+B+C) or just D, MINUS the total Expenses (A+B+E+F+G) So to show it as a proper equation: H (Profit) = D-(A+B+E+F+G)
Question #7 Describe the potential problems and the possible solutions to successfully complete this project.
Example Problem: Rain occurs (T-ball) Solutions: A) Set up rain line (JAYC hotline) for parents to call to find out if games are canceled or will still be played B) Reschedule game for next evening or extend season another week. C) Close the dome
Question #8 List solutions and/or recommendations for future Project Managers.
In this area, you talk about things that made the project successful Changes that should be made to make next year’s project even better. Be specific, detailed and sincere. Keep a notebook and right down recommendations as you think of them during the planning & implementation stages. Have a wrap-up meeting. Several ideas will more than likely be identified that you did not think of yourself.
Examples Why was your project successful? Kelleher’s provided a lot more than any hosts have in the past few years and the runners really liked the place.
Examples What changes can you make to be MORE successful? We ran out of bottled water this year due to the heat. Non participants were drinking the bottled water and runners were taking whole bottles of water and dumping it on their heads. There are several ways to remedy this situation.
