Project management techniques are vital to the successful delivery of research projects. This workshop will allow you to understand the key principles of project management and develop a comprehensive plan for your research. The plan will include contingency, risk management, stakeholder activities and reporting requirements, as well as the technical and project management activities needed for successful delivery of the project. You will leave with both the plan, and the ability to understand how to continue to manage your research project effectively. During this workshop, you will have:
