A labor of love is a generous term for this project car. Rebuilding an old-fashioned car has been my husband’s dream and he “graciously” allowed me to track his progress for this course. The goal is to fully rebuild a 1991 Mini Cooper Rover. The initial deadline and budget have come and gone, but the attention to tracking those changes has not been missed. Using agile project management has been essential. While work is not expected to be completed until this summer it is a joy to see how far we have come. The biggest struggles to overcome have been the restricted time and access we have available for this project and dealing with the extra costs of an unskilled mechanic. The main take-away is a thorough list of lessons learned that can be used in the future.
