For the second year, James Mitchell has served as one of five judges of the West Michigan Project Management Association’s collegiate competition. Teams from West Michigan colleges and universities are given a problem scenario and asked to plan a project, with actions, timeline and outcomes, for resolving the problem. Mr. Mitchell can be seen with Project Organizer Ted Kallman being interviewed by Patrick Center, WGVU News and Public Affairs Director, and Dave Murray, MLive Media Group, on WGVU’s West Michigan Week. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6P6j4IEkZg
