Research and Project Management

Research and Project Management

Project management is seen as the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. Any research project is doomed to failure unless it is well managed. In fact, the successful management of a research project depends on the researchers’ ability to plan, coordinate and perform the research. An unplanned approach often leads to frustrations on the part of students and researchers. The course is for anyone, whether research students or academics, involved in a research activity that wants to develop or improve their project management skills. To enable more successful project outcomes, this course shares a wide range of general and specific recommendations:

• Developing timelines
• Managing risk during the project
• Understanding the nature of your project
• Documenting your assumptions and process
• Decision-making to get the project back on track
