Aims and objectives

This unit aims to inspire and enable research students to apply project management principles and practices to their research activity. By doing so, it is expected that students will be able to plan and manage their research scope and workload effectively, understand the implications of changes to their research project, make appropriate decisions and complete their proposed research and any intended professional development activities in a timely manner, within budget and to an acceptable standard. Ultimately, students are expected to develop sound knowledge and practical skills in project management for effectively managing their future research and non-research projects.

After successfully completing this unit, you will be able to:

1. Identify the key processes, tools, and techniques for managing the various aspects of a generic project;
2. Examine how these key project management processes are applied in some workplace/business projects;
3. Apply these key project management processes, tools, and techniques to make a plan for managing their doctoral research project effectively
