Project Management for Research Projects

May 19, 2023 at 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Audience:Current Students


Research projects are multi-faceted endeavours that require effective management. As such, conducting research successfully does not only entail academic skills but also the capacity to manage substantial projects effectively. To enhance this capacity, this workshop introduces participants to relevant principles, practices, and tools from the field of project management, focusing primarily on the two crucial Process Groups of “Initiate” and “Plan.” In addition to learning about the activities involved in these two Process Groups, participants will also learn about the concrete benefits of adopting the practices used by project managers in other industries.

Learning outcomes:

(1) Identify the benefits of adopting the practices and tools developed in the field of project management

(2) Identify the transferable skills developed/enhanced as part of conducting academic research

(3) Describe project management’s five Process Groups

(4) Apply the practices and tools of Process Groups “Initiate” and “Plan” to research projects
