Project management in a nutshell
This event has been organised by Research Student Skills Programme. For any enquiries please contact pgresearchskills@warwick.ac.uk.
Designed for Postgraduate Researchers at every stage.
 
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 work with others to encourage them to do the same.
This workshop covers:
  • what helps and what hinders a successful completion
  • how to identify and understand the importance of stakeholders
  • how to identify, plan against and manage risk
  • how to set realistic goals and timelines
  • strategies for when things don't go to plan
