Project Management (PM) Course

The world needs science!  We need innovative solutions to complex problems.  We need scientists working together, as members of teams to solve the large-scale complex problems facing our world.  The foundation of these teams is the project manager (PM).  A typical PM, sends calendar invites, prints the agenda, and manages the budget.  This course is more than that.  This course is about what the role of the PM could be and should be on interdisciplinary scientific teams. 

Content
