Projects are all around us. Specifically, in science the planning and management of projects is highly complex and requires a set of tools and techniques to perform successfully. Project management includes excellent techniques to allocate, use, and monitor resources to achieve a goalin a desired time frame. In a scientific setting, goals may include the set-up of experiments, the allocation of grants, publishing a paper, or even achieving tenure.
On the first day of the workshop, participants will define and prepare what is necessary to outline a project and develop an individual plan.
On the second workshop day, participants will reflect and review their project plans together and receive personal feedback on their ideas. Further, participants learn about risk and cost management and the final execution of the project. A break-out session on time management skills will be included.
