Managing Your HDR Candidature as a Project
HDR is a long journey: multiple years, multiple deadlines, different moving parts, different stakeholders, and a lot to manage.
Develop confidence with hands-on tools to keep your candidature on track.
This workshop will provide you with practical step-by-step techniques to planning and managing your candidature as a project. Using principles of project management scheduling, you'll learn to translate the expected deliverables of your candidature into smaller chunks of activities known as ‘work breakdown structures’ that are tied to clear timelines.
You'll gain confidence in determining and breaking down your candidature requirements in a safe and supportive environment. You'll walk away with a practical ‘tool’ that can help you keep track of your progress throughout your candidature to ensure that you don't miss any critical deliverables.
Important to note:
This workshop is a HYBRID Event and takes place over two days:
You don't need any technical project management knowledge or previous experience
Morning tea and snacks will be provided
By the end of the two workshops you'll be able to:
- Appreciate how your HDR study can be managed as a project
- Identify candidature deliverables and milestones in your specific HDR program
- Develop and apply Work Breakdown Structure as a project-management scheduling tool for your HDR candidature
- Consider risks and challenges to ensure you are able to adjust and adapt to meet the delivery of your HDR requirements
Before the first workshop, you should review or bring a copy of your candidature expectations, including Stage 1-3 assessment requirements, Graduate Research Study Plan template, and Review of Progress template.
