PPM: Project Management for Research Institutes
What is PPM
PPM stands for Professional Project Management. It is often seen that top rated technical and research institutes are a little too obsessed in the curiucular technology to have an oversight on the professional precision of scientific project mamagement procedures that should be imbibed with the overall planning, execution, monitoring and control of the project. Due to lack of expertise in projet management the projects are executed in a personal manner and are less productive and most of the time results in no or counter-prouctive results.
PPM is a two days intensive training focusing on the scientic method of executing the high value projects in an academic or research setup. Though some of you might think project management is more of art than a science but the reserve is true. It more so today when the urge to thrive despite so many constraints has been the norm and the accountibility to produce result on the invested money is the bare minimum requirement to succeed in reasearch.

Why Do Need It So Badly
f you are a professor or a scientist in a leading research institute you are already dealing with or aspiring to manage research projects worth multiples of crores(millions of dollars). In order to produce the desired results within the required time, within the specified budget you need to run it through a professional project management process. You should be able to identify and manage the issues. You should be able to communicate effectively and present the status reports to required stakeholders. You need to acquire and manage the human resources effectively to get the optimum performance. Your should be able to manage your budget and accounting with good precision. You should be able to define the scope and handle the change in scope in a smart way. You need to know the way to demonstrate and communicate the larger audience with prototype and pilots. You should be able to know how to manage the schedule of the project including the critical path management (sounds alien. Don't worry. You will be taught). You need to know effective way of testing and validating the results. You should be able to do configuration management to handle multiple people working on the project and undergoing changes with scope and time. This has nothing to with research methodology. It is all about the execution of the entire projects within the constraints and uncertainties to produce maximum result.
All of these can be done either by you on your own way or by a scientific professional way. You can decide Well it is seen that 80% of the project not managed professionally fail to produce results.
How badly you need it? You already have the answer.
