It may surprise you to know that ‘R&D project management’ is one of our ten most popular programmes.
But effective management of R&D projects is a ‘business critical’ issue for many organisations today and many of our clients are grateful for the training we are able to provide in this rather specialised topic.
Our two-day programme is tried-and-tested and is delivered on a regular basis for clients across the UK and internationally (most recently in Brazil, the USA, Belgium and Thailand).
The main topics covered are:
- Key concepts
- Initiating projects
- Defining projects
- Planning the work
- Identifying and managing project risks
- Project execution, monitoring and control
- Exploiting the results of R&D
- Project leadership and teamwork
Delivered by an outstanding trainer, the programme gets excellent feedback.
