More information

Description: This session will teach participants how to apply project management tools and strategies to their research program through a knowledge mobilization lens. Incorporating knowledge mobilization into research can take extra time and planning. It can also make a project more complex by engaging with more partners. Professional project managers are used to managing complex, multi-faceted projects with multiple interests, stakeholders and goals. In this webinar, you will hear from Wendy Hague and Pam Fluttert with the University of Waterloo’s Project Management Office, who will share ideas on what graduate students can learn from project managers to ease the stress of graduate work, make knowledge mobilization seem more feasible and meet your research goals on time.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn how to define clear goals, stick to your timelines and better manage expectations of your supervisor and partners
  • Learn about specific project management techniques that can help researchers manage time, scope, and people such as developing a Project Charter, utilizing a Triple Constraint Framework and applying the Work Breakdown Structure tool
