Organization and project management

Learning objectives

At the end of this chapter you should have learned the following:

  • You can set up a research process and divide it into sub-steps.
  • You understand the concept of phases and can apply it.
  • You know the basics of time management and can use them to establish your ideal work process.

Writing scientific papers or theses are tasks that require planning, organizing, and managing skills. When studying, a master's thesis is in general the largest project. Associated with this task are complex sub-steps such as data collection, reviews, evaluations, and a major expenditure of resources (time, for instance). It is therefore key to have good coordination and time management skills. The steps mentioned above are mainly intended for larger projects such as a master's thesis. However, this layout is also suited for bachelor's theses or term papers that require less time and possibly fewer steps. Courses and tutorials should therefore be seen as means of preparation for larger projects to follow.
