The questions to ask and the least you need to know.
Within your research career, you are likely to have to organise, analyse and present an enormous amount of information.  You will also have to manage your time, set goals and review progress - and probably working with others to encourage them to do the same.  This set of skills is often placed under the heading of "Project Management" and is highly sought by a wide variety of employers.
By the end of the session participants should be able to:

  • Understand the criteria for successful project management and also consider why some projects fail
  • Understand, evaluate and implement various tools to help research planning and communication of that plan
  • Appreciate the importance of stakeholder and risk analysis

Regardless of whether your PhD is based in multinational team and collecting data, or you by yourself evolving an idea, this course will be a productive and valuable way to spend a day.
