This online workshop teaches the fundamentals of project management, including the different project phases (planning, executing, documenting, controlling and evaluating scientific projects). It will outline the differences between classic and agile project management, and their use for e.g. business model canvas, kanban, gantt charts, daily stand-up & retrospective meetings for scientific projects. It will also provide an overview of software tools and teach delegation and individual time management. Allocating roles, leading and steering scientific projects and groups are, as well as conflict management, developing risk scenarios and preparing for fails, important skills in project management and will thus be subject of this workshop.
