I
have managed various projects both in my college and at construction sites but
out of them the one that stands out in my mind as a great challenge was my
final term project of my graduation. It was a Double Decked Cable Stayed Bridge
project. For this project we were a group of three students. In order to start the
project, firstly we had acquired all the knowledge about the cable stayed
bridges regarding its purpose, function, types, management and other aspects
which are necessary for its construction. So all the members started giving
their own efforts for collecting information and we also consulted our course
co coordinators for the necessary information. Moreover internet was also a helpful
in acquiring the important and reliable information especially Wikipedia.

After
acquiring some basic information we gathered all the information collected by
each individual and constructed an outline for starting the project. So, first
of all we had to buy various tools and the raw material required for constructing
our project model within a particular budget which was one of the major
challenge in front of us. So, all of us decided to acquire some tools from our
home whichever we can get easily from our parents permission and we bought the
raw material from the stores. As we had to complete our project within a weekconstruction
as well as our project report making work very quickly, so we asked our
principal to not to attend lectures and give our whole time of school for
project and she agreed and gave us the permission. We also had to give time to
project apart from the school time as the project was very large. As it was a
hydro project we had great difficulties especially in dealing with water as it
was leaking from the model continuously. But in first few days our project was
going very well overall. But after some days we started facing a lot of back to
back problems and like construction of turbine wheel and after that when we
successfully constructed that wheel we had a great problem in its balancing and
alignment as it was too heavy to manage. Somehow we managed that too but there
were several other problems too and everyone in the group was demoralized
especially when the turbine falls down again and every member started blaming
each other for this and had a massive fight between them. As I was team leader
so I make them understand that nothing will happen by blaming each other and we
have to reunite as a group and must consider the advice of each member. It was
a very difficult time for us as we have to re construct the pylons for turbine
and this time it had to be far more strong then the previous ones. In this
difficult time our senior teachers motivated us and encourage us to not to lose
hope. Our other classmates also started helping us in their free lectures in
the construction of the project and the project report as well. With their help
we were luckily able to complete our project on time and were able to present
our project and it was constructed very well. After the completion of the
construction process we started to prepare for the presentation of the model
and it all goes extremely well. Before our final presentation all of us were
very nervous as it was the first time we all were presenting a model on such a
large platform. We presented our project to the C.B.S.E. officials and other
people too and they were very happy by our efforts and we stood third in that
project among 100’s of school from all over the country. It was the first
project that I managed and I gained a lot of experience of situation handling
and  basic management skills from this
project. We also learnt about the importance of team work and coordination
process involved while working in team and the overall experience of the
project was extremely knowledgeable and good for me.
