LAST CHANCE - Sign up for the PhD/postdoc workshop "Project Management - A toolbox for scientists" at UiS, 7-8 May 2018.


Projects are all around us. Specifically, in science the planning and management of projects is highly complex and requires a set of tools and techniques to perform successfully. Are you interested in learning more about how to initiate, plan, and execute a project that meets objectives on time and within the budget? Then sign up for the workshop!

Content
The workshop is organized over one and a half days, during which participants will develop their individual project life cycle. Ahead of the workshop participants are asked to return a short feedback about their expectation for the workshop and to submit their individual project (if available). These information will provide the base of the workshop set-up, the selection of topics and exercises. The submission is required by 23rd April 2018.

On the first day of the workshop, participants will define and prepare what is necessary to outline a project and to develop an individual plan. On the second workshop day, participants learn about risk management and the final execution of the project. As a follow-up, participants have the opportunity to work on their individual project life cycle based on a case study or their own project. After the second training day, participants can submit their homework to the trainer in order to receive a detailed feedback.

During the training participants will get theoretical introduction into the topic by the trainer, do group discussions and structured group work as well as defined homework after the training days. Participants are encouraged to create their own support group(s) after the workshop in order to share their experiences.

The course material and a project management handbook will be distributed as PDF files to all participants.
