4.81 – “I’m excited to fully apply these [PM] techniques to my PhD”

PhD students at the University of Manchester logged on to our popular Introduction to Project Planning webinar session.

The group gave an overall feedback rating of 4.81 out of 5 (5 being Excellent) and all agreed that they:

  • Would recommend this session to a colleague
  • Feel more confident in using the tools & techniques learned

We asked what they’d tell a colleague who asks about this session:

  • “It was very easy to learn the techniques, the mix of activities and videos was great, the facilitator explained the techniques really well and responded quickly to questions and comments.”
  • “It has great applicability for other projects (not research related).”
  • “Wonderful session, full of useful techniques and tips to schedule work tasks.”
  • “Most useful workshop I attended thus far in my PhD.”
  • “It has given me the confidence to plan my research, I realise I did my Gantt chart wrong.”
  • “This is going to help me plan my project better and with more realistic and detailed tasks, expectations and plans.”
  • “I’d recommend them in the first place, and secondly share the resources and tools introduced.”

Other comments included:

  • “I recommend it is done early in the research and new PhD students should be advised to do it. It should actually be one of the compulsory training courses.”
  • “The illustrations were so interactive.”
  • “I’m excited to fully apply these techniques to my PhD.”
  • “Great training!”
  • “Honestly the most useful workshop I had in my PhD.”
