PM Training Science

Startseite / PM Training Science

Projects in science are different. You have to deal with uncertainty which makes your projects difficult to plan. You sometimes operate in an organization that is not yet used to professional project management, but you are asked to apply it. You have to organize a complex group structure as a team when everyone is focused on scientific details.

All this is good reason to have a closer look at how to get input to professionalize your work on the management level and to cope with the challenges.

All workshops specialize in project management methods in scientific organizations and are offered in both German and English.
