Presentation by Nicole M. Bennett

This is an Introduction to Project Management Principles to Benefit Academic Research.  The application of Project Management principles to Academic Research is getting more attention as the parallels and benefits are evident.  A research project is like any other business project: there are specific objectives, partners, risks, a limited timeline, resources, and budget.  Academics and researchers could benefit from many of the tools and techniques available in the Project Management Body of Knowledge.  Join this session and start with five!   After learning about these tips and templates, you should be able to better plan, manage and control your research project.  

Nicole M. Bennett has over 15 years of experience in translating complex ideas into simple processes. Combining her foundations in Engineering (B.Eng. 2003, MA. Sc. 2006) and Project Management (PMP 2014), she has supported, designed and implemented systems, projects, and programs across post-secondary, healthcare, R&D, pharmaceutical, and manufacturing operations in Canada and the US.  Nicole started BENNIX Consulting in 2019 so she could focus more on helping people and projects that matter to her.
