What you’ll learn
Sound research project management is a fundamental element of any research project. Creating a project plan should be seen as an integral, ongoing process initiated at the outset of your research. This plan will provide you with a holistic view of your project, allowing you to make preparations in advance, anticipate potential problems and develop strategies to eliminate risks to your project later on. A well-developed plan will reduce risks, increase efficiency and guide the research process through to completion. It will help ensure that you have met your legal and ethical obligations and that your research outputs will be preserved over time and, where applicable, will be available to others.
