Management Training for Scientists Classes

Training Scientists as Managers

At FAES, we understand that many scientific professionals, while extremely prepared in their scientific disciplines, many have had little experience or education in business management. We understand that preparation to become a laboratory manager or scientific director is oftentimes neglected in scientific training programs. Therefore, to bridge the gap between science and business, our management training program offers workshops to train scientists in core management and leadership skills.

Project Management for Scientists Training Class 

This two-day course provides a comprehensive introduction to the essential aspects of project management for scientists. The course will draw on relevant case studies, and prepare participants to apply learning from the course in their organizations. 

Project management is defined as the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques that applied to a broad range of activities in order to meet the requirements of a particular project.  These results are defined in terms of four factors: cost, schedule, performance, and scope. This three-day project management course will provide a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of project management.  This course will help participants to learn how to create a project plan; how to manage and execute a project; the role of the project manager; and how to utilize several project management tools.  We will provide you with several project management templates to include:  the work breakdown structure, a project budget template, task worksheet, action item log, issue log, gantt chart, and project reports (status report, progress report, variance report, and performance report). The course draws upon relevant case studies, and prepares participants to apply learning from the course in their organizations.
