Today we had uor first meeting with our client! I was alone in the group on being a bit nervous before the meeting, but then again we joked about it that all the responsibility was on me.
The meeting went fine, and my group was firing up on the project. We headed back to school (via an asian restaurant where we had lunch) and made ourselves a small office space.
Then we dug into the project plan, client journey and debrief and handed them in. I wrote the combined project plan and client journey and Fred write the debrief together with Hanna as Erik buried himself in the business plan.
When we'd handed in the assignments I went home. Got stuck in the metro because here was a problem with a train a few stations ahead. Got home, sat down... and started to feel drowsy. Spoke to my sis on the phone, she finally got an apartment in Gothenburg and is moving within two weeks.
The funeral will be the 28th of march. Have to travel the 26th or in the early morning the 27th so I'll miss out on the class evaluation of this module. Miss out and miss out, I won't be able to be there myself, but my group will present my feedback to the class and vice versa.
Got an email from our client not too long ago and felt the heavy duty of project managing on my shoulders. Should I reply now? This late? And prepare for tomorrow? Am I off duty and can I leave this until tomorrow?
I think I should have taken the opportunity to try this role earlier. But then, you never know what happens and I wasn't brave enough to challenge myself to that position before. Even if I haven't had this role in a project I've still had lots of time to observe others and learn about the group process... but I lack the experience of how to deal with these matters.
But then, this is our first real client assignment, so I don't know if the others are that much ahead..?
