Project Management for PhDs

By Jeanine de Bruin, Brigitte Hertz

Only a small percentage of PhD students manage to complete their PhD thesis on time. How can a student plan his/her PhD program in such a way that it will be completed within a set period? Project Management for PhDs shows how to plan and manage a PhD program, no matter how complex and unique the project may be. The writing process receives special attention, as it has been proven to be one of the most important factors in delaying PhD progress. Offering a practical step-by-step plan, the book uses an associated planning system so the student can create a custom-made project schedule. Project Management for PhDs will benefit students and supervisors from all fields and any type of PhD program - not only for those in the classic four-year program, but also for those working part-time, either on their own time or combining the PhD with other commitments.
