  •  cui bono? Who benefits from my project?
  •  carrying out the project effectivly and efficiently
  •  endulge and utilize creativity
  •  project controlling: monitor progress and facilitate change management
  •  project lead and communication: clear responsibilities, pursuing common goals
  •  leading in a sandwich position
  •  documentation: record, (re)find and utilize

Individual topics provided by the participants can also be incorparated in scope of the workshop.
This workshop aims to introdice basic project management knowledge by enabeling practical application. This will be done by identifying reallife issues, by suggesting techniques to tackle those issues and by reflecting on your progress. After the first workshop day you will take home tasks which will be evaluated for their practicability on workshop day two in the following week.

In the Follow Up Workshop (one-day workshop), the content of the project management workshop will be further deepened and problems and issues that have arisen since the basic workshop will be followed up and analysed. The 'Follow Up Workshop' is an offer to further analyse the topic of project management in more detail.

The workshop style was perfect for my taste. It's great for once to be taught by an experienced researcher with equally remarkable training experience. The group size was ideal to allow us to bring up our own experience and problems. The trainer focused on our specific questions and balanced well the amount of theory and useful tips.
