‘Failing to organize is intending to fail.’ Experience shows this to be real for dissertation projects. Frequently, PhD students are afflicted by deficiencies in experience: most of them exhaust time. This issue can, partly, be solved by proper planning and monitoring. Within this course, project management software theory and exercise are put on the duties facing PhD candidates. Participants will interactively familiarise themselves using the concepts and methods of project management software, translate these right into a (revised) research plan, and discover to create feedback about its implementation.
Just before commencing the program, participants are anticipated to submit their research proposals and, if at all possible, their (preliminary) plan. Throughout the course, they’ll familiarise themselves with key project management software concepts and planning techniques, both from the theoretical and practical perspective.
