OCT Advice, according to the PMOCT Host
I've been asked to provide some thoughts on how to create and manage an OCT. And, as with everything I do, I was unable to keep it simple. So, here are my (incredibly verbose) thoughts on the subject. Some of this summarizes things that I did that worked well for me. Others come from mistakes and lessons learned. Take this with a grain of salt! I am a highly structured and organized person. I write EVERYTHING down, breath spreadsheets and to-do lists, and keep about three or four calendars. What works for me may not work for you! Hopefully these thoughts will give you something to think about, but ya gots ta find your own path!
CREATING AN OCT
- Start with a Mission Statement
- Making Rules
- Define your Judging Criteria
- Balancing Environment with Freedom
