This workshop is building on the “Fundamentals of Project Management Course” and is aiming at postdoctoral researchers with existing PM skills who would like to learn how to plan and manage projects with multipe team members, conduct risk assessements and make decisions on continuting (or not) projects.
Date: Wednesday and Thursday, 12-13 September 2018
Duration: 1,5 days; Wednesday: 9-17h, Thursday: 9-13 h
Location: GZMB building, Justus-von-Liebig-Weg 11, seminar room 0.233 (ground floor)
Trainer: Dr. Nadine Sinclair
Building on the agile principles from the Fundamentals in Project Management course, participants will learn how to plan and manage projects with multiple team members, how to define incremental end products, how to identify, assess and manage potential risks in a project and how to define decision points to either continue or discontinue a project.
Furthermore participants will be introduced to the principles of forming and leading a team while managing their own time. They will also learn how to lead collaborative problem solving sessions, how to provide meaningful feedback and how to resolve conflicts within the team.
The course will focus on simple and pragmatic approaches that can be implemented without having to buy and/or learn a software package that do not require long set-up time and can be adjusted easily to the needs of the projects. As part of the course participants will immediately start to apply the newly learned principles to a project of their choice and collect feedback from the group.
