Post-Doctoral Researchers from Teagasc, the Agriculture and Food Development Authority, recently undertook part two of our online training series ‘Introduction to Project Planning’. Based in Ireland, Teagasc is the national body providing research, advisory and training services to the agriculture and food industry and rural communities.
Part two of the course is entitled ‘Scoping the Project’ and considers methods for identifying and managing different expectations. It goes on to look at establishing the purpose driving a project, before exploring methods of defining critical success. It addresses the challenges of doing all this within a setting (such as research) where scope has to be flexible and the end point can lack clarity.
The group gave some great feedback to the course, rating the instructor 4.70 out of 5 (5 being excellent). The also agreed unanimously that they:
- Would recommend the session to colleages
- Will but the learning into practise on return to desk/lab
- Would attend more Fistral webinars
We’ll see this group shortly as they complete the course with the last webinar in the series ‘Creating the Plan.’
