Project Management

Managing Research Projects

1 day

Planning for and successfully completing your research programme is key factor in your career development as a researcher. Perhaps you have just gained your first grant award or maybe find yourself running the PIs research team and aspiring to win grants yourself. Taking appropriate steps to ensure the project runs effectively to achieve its objectives will impact on your future success and reputation.

During this workshop participants focus on three specific aspects of project management skills:

  • Managing yourself – skills in personal effectiveness and organisation;
  • Managing your project – an introduction to getting results on time and on budget;
  • Influencing other people – both above and below you in the management structure.

This workshop will explore aspects of

  • Self management including how to prioritise choices and  to organise our own time and resources to best achieve the project goals,
  • Project management starting with preparing to write the application, managing the project and stages of project completion.
  • Effective communication with colleagues, particularly when we may not have line management responsibility.
