This work package comprises activities related to the project management. It will result in partnership terms and conditions being fully agreed upon, management procedures being fully established and teamwork culture being built. The first activity in this WP, as well as the first project activity, is preparing and holding the project Kick-off meeting, organized in order for the partners to get to know each other, establish management procedures and start off the first project activities.
Project Management (lead by P1) is the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals addressed in project. Task is to define and delivery repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce and deliver planned outputs. That requires the development project management strategy. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honouring the preconceived constraints. The primary constraints are scope, time, quality and budget. The secondary — and more ambitious — challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and integrate them to meet pre-defined objectives.
The management procedures that need to be established include using the online productivity tool Slack. This management platform will be installed and the users will be trained to use it if needed. The management teams and roles will be consolidated.
The work package also includes the complete management and coordination of project activities on a daily basis, as well as organizing cross-functional teams’ on-line meet-ups to review progress, obtain output, and coordinate shared work process.
