Description

The purpose of this resource is to aid instructors in facilitating a workshop on project management for diverse audiences including those who mentor others, mentees, and those engaged in projects themselves. Ideally, this approach should provide a common language and set of tools for both advisors and advisees, to increase the likelihood of project success. Secondarily, the materials provided can also be directly accessed by advisors and advisees who may wish to independently utilize the structural guidelines and information about project management.
