Using Agile Project Management to Lead a Multidisciplinary Research Programme: A Real World Example

Leading academic research projects and teams requires extensive project management skills – in addition to research-specific knowledge. Yet project management side of academic research is often overlooked and not included in academic/research training. As a result, many academic research endeavours fail to reach their full potential in delivering outputs and societal benefits.

The learning objectives
In this talk, Sandra will share project and programme management layers of the BEATS Study journey from a pilot project into an award-winning, internationally recognised research programme. Using the agile project management knowledge, processes and tools – linked with transformational leadership and strategic planning – have been the key to the BEATS Research Programme’s success to deliver value, adapt to challenges, embrace new opportunities, maintain quality and productivity, and remain sustainable in the long-term.
