Prof. David Greenwood used examples from different fields to illustrate the principles of project management

For any research project to succeed, it is essential to establish clear criteria for success, measure progress in meeting these criteria, and adapt to changing circumstances. Prof. David Greenwood shared his insights on project management methods at a seminar at ICARDA headquarters on 19 April. Prof. Greenwood is Associate Dean of Research and Consultancy and Director of the Sustainable Cities Research Institute at the University of Northumbria, UK. He is also chair of the Center-Commissioned External Review (CCER) panel that is evaluating ICARDA’s capacity development activities.

The seminar, Successful and results-oriented project management, discussed the project management process, success criteria, planning and monitoring techniques and other aspects. Particularly relevant to ICARDA were issues of how to manage multi-country projects, and how to avoid over- and under-spending by applying the right project management tools.
