It can be challenging for research teams to know which project management tools and techniques will add value, and how to apply them. This interactive one-day workshop presents six light-touch project management tools tailored for research. Participants will work through two case studies that illustrate project management for research in action and use the tools to create their own planning documents during the workshop. The day concludes with a facilitated session on risk to help participants identify, and begin to develop mitigation strategies for, the risks that are most likely to affect research projects.
