Bi-Vo/Co-Vo Project Management App

Project Management vs Coaching
We believe in the value of Church Plant Project Management AND Coaching. The Project Manager and Coach are two separate but equally important roles. In broad strokes:

- focuses on the what, when, where & how
- sets the agenda and connects with you every week
- manages timelines
- makes sure you document strategies
- helps implement those strategies
- offers tactical/execution experience
- ensures you are establishing healthy practices for the long haul
- focuses primarily on the who & why
- lets you set the agenda and connects with you monthly-ish
- asks questions
- challenges you
- helps you make strategic decisions
- offers feedback on strategy documents
- offers leadership experience
