Game day traffic mapfromchase

  1. 1. Chase Joe Braden Game Day Traffic Map
  2. 2. Start up • Clemson traffic situation – 80,000+ fans on game days – 1 main hwy leading into campus • Navigation can be a gauntlet – Road blocks – One way traffic • Clemson distributes the most parking placards than any school in the ACC
  3. 3. Real game= communication through email (tech. writing) • Truth – Not much effort needed to create and distribute map – Most of effort comes from finding who to write and waiting for responses • Many times most effective method to cut through the wait is to make a visit in person – E-mails horrible in time efficiency – E-mails impersonal
  4. 4. Pros and Cons of e-mail • Pros- – Easy to find someone – Simple to write and send – Fast process • Cons- – E-mails that are easy to find are usually slow to respond – Procrastination is the name of the game
  5. 5. Process • Step 1 – Idea • 1st idea – Book exchange » Fizzled out after lack of support • 2nd idea – Tigerstripe at Wal-mart » Went sour after Iptay proved impossible to reach • Final idea – Clemson traffic map » Successful because we went “the extra mile” to get to the right people and gain their attention quickly (due process joke)
  6. 6. Decided- Game day Plan • During game weeks those in charge of Game- day traffic are extremely busy – Needed a week where CUPD and SC highway patrol were not extremely busy planning for the weekend • Away game • Wake Forest (2 wins+ 1 loss came of this) Save Clemson swimming!
  7. 7. Personal Project- • It was up to me to get our map put on the Clemson University athletic web site and on the City of Clemson website – 1 success • Connections through athletics = quick response – 1 Failure • Easy- to- find emails take their time responding – (if at all)
  8. 8. “easy to use” and “highly effective” “If you’re looking for a conversation with a representative, you should talk to that drop box in the corner” -30 Rock
  9. 9. Better use of time • Contact Chris Ip; – Head coach of swimming and diving • Conversation noted on “Needed to Get Foot in Door” File “Head Coach Christopher Ip has put his fingerprints all over the Clemson Swimming and Diving programs during his first six seasons. Since joining Clemson in 2002-03, Ip has led both the men's and women's programs among the most well-rounded in the country. Ip's programs routinely score highly in the pool and the classroom. “
  10. 10. Link to Libby Kehn • In control of Clemson U. Website swimming page – Not Quick to respond • Needed 2nd email – Connected to Jason Wilson • Recap on “to get in front door” File Dawww- She made it up to me
  11. 11. Link to Jason Wilson • In Control of website – “reviews and provides most of the information for the page” • Supported our cause – Final step? • Recap on “to get foot in door” File
  12. 12. Meeting with SC Highway patrol and CUPD (Joe) • SC highway patrol in charge of changes in traffic flow – Helped create most of map • CUPD mostly in charge of personal safety – Road blocks • Terrorists • Cover for SC Highway Patrol
  13. 13. Helpful Map **can’t insert pic from PDF without snip tool. So I’ll be shameless and just do a manual transition and let Braden take over
  14. 14. Map (sans- Braden)
