About this event

Targeted at Assistant Professor Programme

Managing Your Research Project

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

For most Academics and 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 timeInfluencing 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.

“This turned out to be about finding the most helpful strategies for managing me, managing the project, and managing other stakeholders. Not only was the content invaluable, precisely tailored, interesting, and veryrelevant but also Margaret’s presentation style was engaging, warm, andcompelling. A first-rate workshop that I would have no hesitationrecommending anyone undertaking PhD Research, especially at the start of their PhD, to attend.” Philip J James
