Basics of Project Management

How to initiate, plan and run research projects

Projects in general can be considered as extraordinary, temporary ventures which in many cases require interdisciplinary or cross-institutional teamwork. The importance of a systematic approach to project work is growing in the environment of research too. The meaningful connection of research content and research management is the basis for delivering good results in time while considering the available resources.

  • give your research project a useful setting and to manage the project goal oriented.
  • evaluate the restrictions and general conditions well and use them wisely
  • reduce the complexity of the project by a structured plan
  • analyze and coordinate the interests of the involved and interested parties
  • recognize certain deviations during the project’s process and react appropriately

  • Project management map (principals, methods, tools)
