Project based work dynamics

Personal Development

Project based work dynamics

Training overview
Often activities or tasks in University are called projects. But they are completely different from (large) projects in companies. How do projects really work? What do all the terms they use in projects, actually mean? You will learn all about the dynamic world of working in projects. You benefit the most from this training in the first year as a Brightie.

Target audience
Do you recognize the following statements?

  • I’m relatively new (< 1 year) in working in projects, at least in a corporate setting.
  • I sometimes feel overwhelmed by my project environment and all the different terms and procedures.
  • I do not understand why sometimes the project leader decides and sometimes another person. What are all those roles in a project? And what is my role?
  • I sometimes have to help out in setting up a project. But I have no clue how to do that…
  • And? Did you recognize yourself in (some of) the statements? Then this training addresses just what you need to feel more ‘at ease’ in a challenging project environment!
