Challenges: What challenges might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?

Strategy Development and Operations Framework:
We face challenges in measuring impact and management of skilled volunteers. We also need a system to manage “clients”.

Consistency in Quality Works:
Managing and controlling of volunteers’ work can be challenging.
We manage the risk by engaging experienced Chief Designer to oversee projects on a part time/voluntarily basis.

Irregular Volunteers
We may encounter difficulties to fulfill the organizations’ needs at short notice due to limited or availability of volunteers.
