We were delighted to be back with our first webinar of the year – Introduction to Project Planning (Part 1): Establishing Foundations. Delivered to a group of research staff at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh (although some were attending from as far away as Malaysia), it was part one of three sessions on the subject to this group.
The webinar was very well received; the group gave an overall feedback rating of 4.38 out of 5 (5 being Excellent), and the Top 3 comments from the attendees were:
- “It really helps early career fellows.”
- “This was really great, thanks! Particularly thinking about investment of my own time as a ‘budget’ item and going ‘over budget’ at weekends.”
- “Thanks, super interesting and helpful.”
The next two sessions in this course are, Part 2: Scoping the Project and Part 3: Creating the Plan. We look forward to working with this group again, building on and developing the ideas we discussed today, now that we have ‘established the foundation.’
