Hi. I'm calculating my hours of project management experience. I've worked mainly in non-profit healthcare development, doing marketing projects, grants management and other project management.
Sometimes I get confused with what qualifies as a "project." Does anyone know if I can I count the grant proposals I was in charge of where we'd put together complex new projects for potential funding? For this, I was in charge of developing the goals/objectives, budget, deliverables, staffing, new processes etc.
Also, could event management be considered for hours in project management?

Here is the acid test: If preparing the grants proposal had defined start and finish dates and the scope of work was agreed, I would say these were projects. If any of this was missing, then perhaps these were operational activities. Can you elaborate what was the duration of these projects, who was the customer, how did you scope out the project initially and how did you close these projects? This information will help me guide you better.
