The first Biotech Project Management Workshop was held in November 2015.
Introduction to Biotech Project Management is a one-day interactive workshop that gives participants an introduction to basic project management concepts and tools. The workshop provides participants with key insights into the planning (technical) and managing (soft skill) parts of project management.
An experienced workshop guide will share their own experiences and help participants relate to their own hidden project management knowledge.
This workshop provides the participants with an introduction to the processes of project initiation, planning, execution, control, and closure. Several key leadership concepts are presented and discussed, such as:
Building Effective Teams
Managing Project Risk
