Managing Research Projects

Planning and completing your research programme is key to success in your career as a researcher.

For most researchers, delivering upon the plans they have is a challenge in project management for which they are given little or no formal preparation. Applying for or achieving your first grant award is a major step in the project management journey which can be simplified by a better understanding of how to more effectively manage research projects.

This workshop will examine the nature of project management, identifying goals, milestones and assessing risks. We will also consider how to organise time and resources to best achieve the project goals.

During this workshop participants explore three aspects of project management skills:

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

Participants will learn:

  • Tools for determining priorities in their workload
  • New time management strategies
  • Tools to increase personal effectiveness
  • Understand the project management cycle
  • Clarify the importance of understanding stakeholders, scope and risk
  • Plan for and anticipate timelines in a project
  • Understand the four major behavioural communication styles
  • Have strategies to improve management communication skills.

Speaker: Dr Margaret Collins

My research career is driven by the question "How does that work?". During my career at the University of Surrey, The Institute for Animal Health and the Royal Veterinary College it didn't take long for me to begin to ask that question about teaching students. Why were some techniques more effective than others? What if students had different learning styles?

Similarly when it came to career progression and promotion, why did some people move up more quickly and easily than others? How did that work?

I found many answers through study of Coaching, Behavioural Styles Analysis, Neuro Linguistic Programming and developments in educational theory. In 2003 I founded this company, designed to bring aspects of these disciplines into academic workshops for you to share!
