In consultation with your supervisor, we strongly advise you to write a project management plan that can be modified during the life of your research project.
A project management plan will help you define the project, set milestones and deadlines, clarify expectations and plans with your supervisory team, as well as help you stay on track and avoid pitfalls.
The preparation of a project management plan requires you to think thoroughly about how you expect your project to unfold. This is a very useful planning process that will help you achieve your project objectives on time by utilising the resources you have available to you.
A project management plan typically includes:
It may be useful to identify the date of submission of the bound thesis and to prepare a timeline of events and completion dates, working back from this deadline.
The plan should be discussed with your supervisors to determine its adequacy and reviewed regularly to ensure its continued relevance and achievability.
Project management workshops are also held throughout the year to support you with preparing and utilising your plan.
